Topping young tree

That wasn't based on health and safety being over the top, it was the claimants inappropriate use of the site despite all the warning and precautions they had put in place.   

The ratio in Congleton is that protecting people from every little thing isn't necessary if it reduces public utility. The law realises that making things 100% safe will make life miserable.

Yes and disproportionate to the actual level of risk, you can find that in the NTSG guidance as well relating to trees (rather than lakes), but its not the same as trying to say health and safety is over the top.

Thanks Chris, I’ve learnt more in those 2 posts than in 20 years, probably because I never read and learnt on the tools.

 I’ve always struggled at retaining information I read but you make it very clear and memorable to me for some reason.

  

  Thanks

I didn't. We're arguing about nothing.

Back on topic, twatting about with trees makes money from people who are scared into thinking they need to twat about with them.

In a lot of cases maybe but rubbishing formative pruning of young trees to eliminate problems that will cost hundreds to fix in the future for pounds when they are younger and leaving them more stable ,stronger and without huge wounds blah blah blah ... could go on.....
Out of all the pointless pruning I’ve done over the years I can honestly say the formative pruning of thousands of young street trees was probably the only real necessary pruning I’ve done and I am proud to look at these trees 20 years on with there good form for the future.
