Subsidence Risk Report
Subsidence can cause considerable damage to both public and private buildings and lead to great cost for both the public and private purse. There are many factors which can cause subsidence, with tree-related subsidence being a surprisingly common cause. Tree-related subsidence occurs when the soil surrounding the property shrinks due to water being drawn and not replenished. This is most commonly found with clay soil and can be caused by trees with a high-water uptake, or a process called “heave”, which is often due to changes in the environment, such as the removal of a tree.
Whatever the reason for the subsidence, at JAG Arboriculture Consultancy we can carry out a subsidence risk report with the necessary tests to evaluate the reasons behind the problem. We will analyse the soil and roots and provide you with a detailed survey, with advice and recommendations to alleviate the problem and provide long-term protection for your property.
