tomorrow reduction..lime with TPO

Recommended Posts

reduced few years ago (8? can't remember)  and customer has cone back to us with another report done just 2 weeks ago.

specifications are

1: Up to 40% Reduction (not very specific as per usual 🙄)

2: crown thin ( no explanation or expectation..but its obviously to allow wind flow through the tree)

3: Raise crown by 4 metres 

 

literally one paragraph of writing so its obviously left to my discretion although the last Reduction  specifications where 20% reduction approx....

the tree, if I remember correctly is now still around 100ft  tall and was around 115 or so before the last one 

 

I'm looking forward to this one, again... , other than a few 30ft cherry trees taken down while clearing a building plot...this is the first day back climbing since Xmas eve .... ...Will post photos  of the tree after the newest reduction  tomorrow evening ..

I’m confused as to how the spec can be discretionary when it will have gone through planning , which surely would have necessitated a specific and accurate level of works ?

I'm surprised that big a reduction was allowed on a tpo tree. Have you seen the full report? I would guess there's more going on than just standard reduction spec.

If they are reducing by 40% (ignoring the fact that reductions shouldn’t be specified in percentages), what exactly are they thinning?  The growing points I’m guessing!   Unless they are cleaning out the middle and lion tailing the growing points?

A two week turnaround from the council is quite quick. Is the tree significantly compromised? Does the spec of the new report correspond to the wording of the initial TPO application?
