    Well, this is a bit hard to assess for me - I do not have a week old
    tree without your changes to easily point out the differences - I
    hoped *you* would be able to do the before-vs-after comparison, so I
    provided you with the shortest example of the problem I could think of.

I don't have an old tree either, but I guess what I was asking is for you
to just expand a little on what you meant above: what does "protection is
arranged" mean and precisely what was being protected?
