Is this like the scare ramped up about non-existent danger from asbestos cement?

Coal ash can be used for paths, but never for plants.

I would write to the surveyor's governing body and make a very forceful complaint. Make sure you quote his name as it is a scandal if he is saying this on every report he does. I would also make a formal complaint to the firm he was doing the survey for.

To move apple trees or leave them behind

Unless you have specifically told the buyer of the house, in writing, you are taking them, you can't.

I'm not sure they would move anyway.

There is no evidence that Glocosamine helps with knee pain, but I know that if I don't take it regularly I am in agony. So Mr Clark unless you have tried acupuncture and find it wanting I would discount your views.

There are more things in Heaven and Earth...............

Be careful about a Preservation Order. If you are sure this is your 'forever house' OK fine. But if you want to move some people may be put off by having trees they can do nothing with without hassle.

Your neighbour cannot dictate to you if the trees are on your property, whether they like it or not.

You can also eat them. Good flavour, but their nickname is Fartychokes!

My goodness, I would not suggest it with a conifer hedge. First step would be to find out what it consists of. Unfortunately posters rarely give us enough information.

Rural, town, suburban? Conifer, deciduous? Varieties? Height? Berried? Slow-growing? Etc, etc.

The hedges in the farmers' environmental schemes in Wales are cut back to ground level, and they all spring up again. Virtual coppicing in effect. When they reach a suitable height they can be cut and laid if that's what you want or otherwise kept in check.

Silly question of the day!

Perhaps our lot don't speak welsh! But you can set your watch by them as they fly over to their roost.
