No more veteran trees? Well you'd need to choose your 10% with discretion.
The 10% you cull every 10 years might be the 10% you planted 50 years ago,
it all depends how they grow, what you've planted, where you are, and what
you hope to achieve. But I don't think Rodney's suggestion was ever
intended to suggest that the whole population would be renewed every
century.

I don't have an issue with the theory of rotational planting, but I think
it needs to be species specific. For extreme examples, there would be value
in rotational planting of a short lived species like birch but it would be
a totally wrong to start 'culling' yew trees.

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.
