Trees and buildings

The interaction between trees and built structures depends on a number of complex issues, including: tree species, growth potential, water demand, proximity to the structure, soil-type, drainage and climate as well as building design & construction.

Subsidence damage

Subsidence damage

Tree-related damage can include:

  • Subsidence
  • Heave
  • Direct displacement
  • Displacement of surfacing
  • Colonisation of underground services

Tree Maintenance consultants are experts in assessing the potential for damage as well as investigating existing damage caused by vegetation. We can provide pre-purchase mortgage and insurance reports, along with arboricultural input in relation to building damage.

Tree Maintenance reports will include an analysis of our findings together with recommendations as to an appropriate course of action.

Damage assessment may require a multi-disciplinary approach, including involvement of an arboriculturalist as well as a structural and / or geo-technical engineer.
