Our client informed us that there was subsidence damage that had occurred at a property in Sheffield therefore an arboricultural report was required.
We were informed by our client that the damage observed at the property was due to clay shrinkage caused by vegetation.
Following our consultants survey at the property, our consultant concluded that 2 out of the 3 trees on the property were responsible for contributing to the subsidence damage. Our consultant advised that the 2 x ash trees should be removed to ground level and the stump treated to prevent any regrowth in the future. As the trees are owned by the Local Authority, we recommended that the council were advised that there is a need to remove the trees.
