Thanks all. These Limes are 3m tall. A row of well maintained cubes of
foliage touching the neighbouring cube. The Tree Officer wants to include
them when modifying an area TPO at confirmation. There is no dispute about
the inclusion of a great many large Limes, Oaks, Horse Chestnut, Plane and
Walnut. This just seemed like overkill.

What's the amenity value? is it raised or lowered by the intense
maintenance they require? I'd say it's a hedge, at least until the owner
got fed up and let them become a row of trees.
If I was a Tree Officer with a heavy work load I'd say it was a hedge and
leave them to it.

John,
         Had a similar issue in a CA a number of years ago, the limes
were
supposed to be pleached but had become over grown so had to be reduce in
height and width which required a notification and I think we put in for
a
rolling consent over a period of 10 yrs which was agreed.

It depends upon size and whether topiary disqualifies a tree species from
being a tree.
I repeat the wisecrack that if two arbs agree, one of them is probably
wrong!

Hmmm, not sure I agree Jim. They don't look like 'trees'. They're a
formal
feature. As such, I'm not sure they're what one would 'ordinarily call a
tree' as in Bullock vs etc.  Just a row of square boxes of foliage. Since
when did trees look like that?

If defined as trees and they have significant public amenity value
then a TPO may be appropriate, and the new regs allow for repetitive
work - although not open-ended.  If in a CA, again if defined as
trees, then as notification only requires a letter, then e-mailing one
a year with the date knocked on is no big deal, although there is
nothing in theory to prevent a pruning regime notification for, say 5
years.

Thoughts please

A client has a row of pleached limes. Would these qualify for a TPO?
Does the annual pruning require Conservation Area notification? Or are
they a 'hedge'?

Cheers

John
