We don't need certainty.

If tree assessment following storms means looking for leaners, cracks 
in the soil (usually on the side opposite the lean), and raised soil on 
one side of the tree, the tree may be terminally weakened. There have 
been cases where the remaining root system was strong enough to hold 
that position long enough for new growth to continue to add a component 
of resistance, allowing the tree to remain for several years. The 
problem is, the tree remains out of balance, and as the canopy 
continues to grow, more weight is added to a longer moment-arm, 
increasing the tension which the remaining damaged root system and any 
new root growth must resist. The problem remains that there is no way 
to determine for certain when the tree will fail, if ever, depending 
upon a constantly-changing, imponderably complex context.

This might interest those of you who carry out tree risk assessments
at
schools or colleges

We've just uploaded and shared a new Tree Risk-Benefit Management
Strategy
template for schools or colleges in the Landowner section of the Risk 
Management page on our website.

https://validtreerisk.help/Risk-Management

This work was prompted by a Validator asking for some client
guidance.  As
with the other Strategies and publications, we've waived copyright,
and
it's
shared under a creative commons licence.

The difference between the Landowner & School Strategies is the size
of
land
and number of staff.

Landowner
Many staff who spend a lot of time working outside have been trained
as
Basic Validators.  Like the University of Dundee.

School
Usually, one or two caretakers who spend some time working outside
and
haven't been trained as Basic Validators.  When they're outside, they
carry
out Passive Assessment by keeping an eye out for Obvious Tree Risk 
Features; particularly after storms.
