Trees can occupy a substantial part of a site, and because of their potential size can have a major influence on the planning and use of the site. Existing trees of good quality, well sited and appropriate to their surroundings will greatly enhance any new development by providing an immediate appearance of maturity. In these situations existing trees should be accepted and welcomed.

On the other hand, if new or existing trees are poorly sited or of an inappropriate size and species for their surroundings, they may be resented, and no amount of legal protection will ensure their retention and survival. To avoid such problems, and to ensure a harmonious relationship between trees and buildings, careful planning is needed on their juxtaposition. Misplaced enthusiasm for the retention of inappropriate trees can create as many problems as their wanton destruction.
