Rodney Helliwell suggested that replacing 10% of a tree population every 10
years would be a reasonable objective in the management of any tree
population, which seems a perfectly sensible approach. And you might even
discover that natural selection meant nothing ever had to be removed, that
is natural wastage (I don't like that term but I can't think of another one
off-hand) would select which trees either toppled or died and thus saved
you the trouble of selecting which 10% had to be culled...

Admittedly that wouldn't really prevent the public outcry when some of
those massive Planes in London were selected, naturally or otherwise.

As Mark says, they can thrive mightily and the problem of Victorian era
trees becoming far too big for their sites is both widespread and serious,
and looking at huge Planes in London I’m certainly at a loss as to how you
go about replacing them.

They grow very fast and very big along the south coast. I suspect, far
bigger than the people who planted them ever expected them to be. Many of
them a reaching an age where they become less reliable, usually large limb
shedding is the problem.

That neighbourhood's well-known for tree disputes Wayne. Most expensive
properties in the UK I believe. Only one mention of "amenity" in the
article. Looks like a tree in a position that many people would have found
oppressive. I'm not particularly familiar with the species (Pinus radiata)
but we planted some alongside our drive, after an elderly friend coaxed the
seed out of some cones in his oven. Out of the dozen or so transplants we
planted and then became reasonably established, only a couple survive now.
I don't know how well they thrive down on the south coast.
