We carried out an arboricultural survey on behalf of our client as part of an investigation into subsidence damage. The property inspected was a two-storey, end of terrace house. Internal crack damage was fairly extensive particularly around the front of the house.
After conducting a detailed survey, our consultant identified a common beech tree as the primary cause of damage. We therefore recommended that the tree was felled, and the stump treated to prevent any regrowth. As this tree had a tree protection order, we had to apply to Calderdale Council for this to be removed. Our consultant also identified two groups of vegetation to be of possible future concern, if left unmanaged. We therefore, recommended that these groups of trees were to be maintained at or below their current sizes.
