  1. But the house could get catapulted into space by heave. Need to snip off 10% of the leaves once every couple of weeks, at night, so the tree doesn't realise and the ground stays flat.
  2. This is verging on hawrassement now.
  3. This register,... Could that simply be the planning admin system of choice? If not, what would it look like? What should the headings be?
  4. Reckon that's ash but with some of the bark off and other bits discoloured by lichens and mosses etc.
  5. Daedaleopsis confragosa / blushing bracket

    Ticks away!

    Collect them up when they're engorged and pretend that they're olives, but tastier.
  7. I've got a couple of three which I can see from my office which are looking dreadful. I'd put it down to root disturbance catching up with them. No other symptoms apart from dieback. I'm sure I've heard a few other people talking about dying Wellies too.
  8. Councils do just that. Poole BC are quite well into POC.
  9. I meant in the wider context, where an extension would otherwise have been PD but to build it they have to carry out a prohibited activity e.g. root severence for foundations or pruning to fit it in. The PD rights don't trump the TPO therefore surely an app of some sort should be required?
  10. Just out of interest, how do others approach otherwise PD apps where trees may be affected? Rightly or wrongly, I take them as tpo apps with relevant 5837 bits, but should they be dealt with as standard planning apps?
  11. What became of this tree? Did you get to the bottom of what was causing the swelling?
  12. Replacement planting is a duty and shouldn't be used as punishment. The goal is to ensure successful establishment and this is much likelier in smaller trees.
  13. I've served a tpo on my way way home on Christmas Eve before. It definitely gets me in the festive mood. I wanted to do a 12 days of Christmas once.... On the 5th day of Christmas the council served on me a T RRRRRR N Etc.
  14. Probably would have facepalmed 🤦‍♂️ Luckily the layman doesn't understand the finer details of tpo's and the first they found there was a problem was when they were served with a new tpo.
