According to guidelines from the British Standards Institute,every tree in the nation should be inspected every 3 years,by a trained person to ensure that it does not pose a problem to the public.
So if you see a tree that looks as though it might be about to a attack someone,or is merely hanging about the entrance to a park with a few of his mates,rustling its leaves in a threatening manner,then give the BSI a ring,let them sort it.

Trees wearing hoods should not be approached, and the BSI and Police should be informed at once :)

Bit like insurance reports and claims: "Suddenly the tree appeared, then hit me" ;o)

Naughty things these trees, should be banned.

The fact that you are here to tell the tale,is a blessing.

Of course trees are dangerous -

Just the thing to stand under in a lightning storm. ;0)

Branches falling in roads causing accidents.

Kids falling out of them, never mind adults that should know better.

Conkers - don't forget to wear your safety glasses.

Trees that get in the way of skiers and tobogganists.

Dangerous berries (yew one of the most poisonous in this country.

Wet leaves casing slips and falls as well as causing chaos on the railway.

Forest fires.

Trees add them to the "Banned List"

This is the sort of thing that the proposals are intended to combat, Mr poole was a friend of mine and was only where he was because of doing an extra shift.

Judge Richard Wakerley QC said: "The condition and the danger the tree presented would have been obvious to anyone making a close inspection of that tree."

Spike Milligan would have been against this plan. What else could he have talked to before they put him away?
