Whether your home is disappearing into the abyss or you are plagued by minor seasonal cracking, Cheshire Woodlands have the skills to investigate your problems with allied professionals, such as structural engineers, to find appropriate solutions to your problems


By abstracting moisture from shrinkable soils, trees can contribute to the subsidence of low-rise buildings.  Where tree roots are implicated in subsidence damage to buildings, our consultants will assess trees and other vegetation in relation to damage patterns identified by a Structural Engineer.

Instructed by Loss Adjusters and property owners, Cheshire Woodlands will work with Structural Engineers and other professionals to investigate causes of damage and formulate solutions.

Cheshire Woodlands use of Quantified Tree Risk Assessment has proved invaluable. It has helped us to retain trees that were condemned by another advisor. They have used measurable data to provide us with a valid tree risk assessment.

Tree Roots and Buildings FAQ


When making an enquiry for a quote, what information do you need me to provide?

If your property has already suffered suspected subsidence related damage, you should provide us with any existing structural reports and the results of any investigations or monitoring.

The presence of a tree growing close to your home will not necessarily cause any serious issues. Factors including soil type, species and height of the tree are important to consider when assessing the influence of roots.
