Abstract: We strengthen the property $ \Delta$ of a function $ f:[\omega_2]^2\rightarrow [\omega_2]^{\leq \omega}$ considered by Baumgartner and Shelah. This allows us to consider new types of amalgamations in the forcing used by Rabus, Juhász and Soukup to construct thin-very tall compact scattered spaces. We consistently obtain spaces $ K$ as above where $ K^n$ is hereditarily separable for each $ n\in\mathbb{N}$. This serves as a counterexample concerning cardinal functions on compact spaces as well as having some applications in Banach spaces: the Banach space $ C(K)$ is an Asplund space of density $ \aleph_2$ which has no Fréchet smooth renorming, nor an uncountable biorthogonal system.
