  1. Copper Beech losing leaves.

    Hi Tom, It could well be some kind of root damage - is the poor foliage on the same side of the tree as where you suspect some roots may have been damaged? As Mick says, some photos would help if you can post some up. There are some options to improve the soil environment and stimulate new root development that may help... Paul
  2. Making the news today....

    I forgot to say it was probably pushed over by some left-wing scumbags. Better?!

  5. Nasty incident in Maderia - 12 dead and 50 injured. The video is blurry but it appeared to be a still day. http://www.publico.pt/multimedia/video/a-queda-da-arvore-na-madeira-captada-em-director-20170815-150216
  6. Level of detail: Foundation within an RPA

    Good points Edward - but often the feasibility can be adequately demonstrated without having to produce all the specific detail drawings up front. If, in principle, pile and a voided raft would be acceptable having done some investigations re rooting and soil, then that should be enough to demonstrate the tree should not be harmed subject to implementation via a detailed AMS.
  7. Level of detail: Foundation within an RPA

    Yes, probably. We're finding that more planning officers are front-loading applications to require more and more information up front - which gets very expensive rather quickly for the applicants. I would have thought that in this case, particularly given the history of structures already in the RPA an indicative foundation section drawing and AMS would be enough - then use an appropriate pre-commencement condition for the rest of the detail.

    I have the Bose mini sound link but it has stopped working as it won't charge any more. It was good while it lasted but that was less than a year. Sent from my iPhone using Arbtalk
