    TPO Replacement Tree Sizes

    A course of action, as it seems the trees have been removed without permission, may be to try and come to a more reasonable size with the LPA, if they don't budge wait for your Tree Replacement Notice and appeal it on the grounds that the size is unreasonable.

    Windblown TPO

    Hello everyone, I'm looking for TPO replacement regs after wind-blow. Had a big oak come down last weekend subject to a TPO. Can't see anything in the 2012 regs which cover this as it didn't meet the s.198(6)a classification. Mynors states there seems to be no duty on the landowner to replace but does say the Blue Book (no longer in force) suggests otherwise. Thoughts appreciated.
  3. Hello guys and girls, Had a large ash tree come down in a woodland and cant get chipper access. Given its a woodland we are now thinking about cutting the tree into lengths and leaving against a stream banking which is at an angle of around 15 degrees. Can this be successful if we hammer some rebar into the banking to hold the timber? Cheers. Cant leave the stem where it is as its blocking the watercourse and footpath.
  4. Hi guys, Few pics below of an oak in local park which has a large crack about 20ft long at the rear. The garden cane in the pic is 60 cm and I probed at three points and the cane kept going, tried the three points again with a meter of steel cable and lost it almost. Some occlusion further up the stem no p&d evident. Its down for annual monitoring now but I think some invasive investigation is needed given its location, any thoughts on next steps?? Cheers

    Shear bomb on mature Oak??

    Hi guys, Few pics below of an oak in local park which has a large crack about 20ft long at the rear. The garden cane in the pic is 60 cm and I probed at three points and the cane kept going, tried the three points again with a meter of steel cable and lost it almost. Is this a shear bomb ready to go?? Some occlusion further up the stem no p&d evident. Cheers

    BS5837 current price?

    I did a five tree survey and report - charged 325 for site time, desk study and report/recommendations. All in all about 6 hours including travel time so 55ph. An individual TCS is minimum 190 with travel time on top. This normally involves about an hour on site and three hours desk work so about 50ph min. Having said that i'm a one man band with secondary income so overheads are not too costly.

    Tree surveying software and tackle.

    Still use a pen and paper on site with a map supplied by the client. Any CAD stuff I need gets done by a third party using the info on a survey template. This still works for me. I've heard stories about people paying thousands of pounds a year for licences and tech support but for the scale of my operation I cant justify the cost. Never had a complaint from any local TOs or architects with my surveys so far.

    Rotten sycamore

    Whats the target/usage area in the vicinity of the tree? This would be my first thought. Can the risk can be mitigated by moving the target. Can the tree be pruned to reduce the risk of faliure? You also need to know the size of the decay cavities to get a better idea of what you're dealing with
