That is quite funny.  All you do is generalize and say that we know nothing.

Multiple times you have asked questions and I have provided the background
references yet you say that you do not care about published material or
what people are doing and why.

In the case of David Evans post this morning do you know anything about
risk assessment?  Maybe you are going to tell us once again that you don't
care about risk but only the tree.  Every time you say this and then say
the tree is in decline yet you fail to provide proof.

Have you read this paper?

Kindly quote any specific thing I have said that led you to conclude that I
was "criticizing anything you said." I don't know how to respond to
generalizations.

Yes but please teach us instead of just criticizing and doubting just

" Shall we learn and move assessments forward?"

Yes.

Wayne, what is your point?  "*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*."  Shall we
do
nothing?
Shall we cut every tree?  Shall we use our knowledge, training, and
experience?  Shall we learn and move assessments forward?  Perhaps you
believe that we are incapable of working with uncertainty?

 Perhaps you can provide a better strategy we can all learn from and
critique.

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.

Cheers
