Re: 5837 rpa's?
The thinking behind rounding up RPAs to the nearest 10mm is to try and stop people submitting reports with RPAs specified to the nth degree. I imagine most people calculate the RPAs using a formula in Excel but don't bother to edit it to a sensible level of accuracy before copying the tree data table in to their reports!
The table in Annexe D makes it easier to determine a RPA without doing the calculations yourself, but personally I'll still use my own calculations as I find this quicker.
The fun(!) bit is doing the maths for multi-stemmed trees now!
