Tree evaluation method for preservation orders


A scoring scheme developed by Julian Forbes-Laird which values a tree in relation to its condition, life expectancy, prominence in the landscape, ‘other factors’ and the magnitude of any threat, creating a threshold for deciding whether a tree preservation order is defensible or not.

This definition is abridged from A – Z of tree terms: A companion to British arboriculture.
