Dead-wooding protected trees - Are we all doing it wrong?

All contractors should do this. Mrs Miggins might blow things out of proportion and say someone is cutting the tree down, and the TO makes an unnecessary  mad dash to the site.

Sometimes it's nice to get out of the office.

As I read it, there's no suggestion that you must notify the council to remove deadwood.

I follow your reasoning entirely but the short paragraph below the two Important notes, 1 & 2 has led me astray.

 

"Therefore a risk assessment would address the size of branch or tree (being assessed) and the likelihood of it falling on a vulnerable or valuable target."

 

My bad, I wasn't understanding that the above paragraph was referring to compliance with the 'dangerous' exception and had nothing to do with dead branches, covered simply by their own exception. :thumbup1:

 

Thanks for persevering to correct my misunderstanding.

If it's not clear, or easy to understand, from the document what the Council are trying to communicate, it's a failure of the Council.

 

Elsewhere on here I have extolled the values of grammer, punctuation and spelling to make it clear exactly what it is that you are trying to communicate.

Can't fault your grammar, perhaps your spelling though.  Sorry...couldn't resist.

 

Anyway, an interesting thread and comments, so thanks.

Congrats.... Thread derailed in the first response :001_rolleyes::lol:

 

This is the legal forum, so the pro's and cons of deadwood are totally irrelevant Khriss :P, try to keep on track (see what I did there?)

 

Cornwall councils interpretation of the requirement to submit a five day notice, where the risk of harm/damage is low, is a new one on me and has never been raised in any of the training that I've attended. 

To be fair, it even seems logical and on a par with the rules relating to dead trees i.e. notify unless there is an imminent risk of harm/damage.

I’m actually in shock Gary!

 

Cornwall council being held out as paradigm....

 

I think I’m actually having a panic attack!

Yr precisely right Edward, dunno how many times I have corrected people to "its to 'whom' am I speaking" not " wot you lookin at.." ;)
