I don't know if I'm being treated as an idiot or not -help! I have a single eucalyptus cider gum tree in my garden, it's stem is 510 in radius at 1.5m height, approx 12m tall and in a healthy state. Which makes an RP radius of about 6 metres(?). The tree is on my land and close to a neighbouring development, so has been given a bs5837 rating of C3 by them/their report for the following reasons, is this correct, does lack of biodiversity make it a C3 tree always as a Eucalyptus? Their response to me when I queried the category...; With regards to the categorisation of the tree, this decision was made following an appraisal of the tree, the species and its location. Eucalyptus offer no foraging value to our native invertebrates and are of little value to local biodiversity therefore the tree does not have the 'material or other cultural value' that would require it to be categorised as a 'B'. Eucalyptus as a species are also particularly vulnerable to wind throw which will direct future management in the future and limit its wider amenity value.
