Building Interactions

Can Tree Roots Damage Buildings?

The relationship between tree root systems and buildings or infrastructure is often a cause for serious concern for property owners or managers.

Tree Environs consultants have many years of experience and training in assessing tree-building interactions to determine what role tree root systems play in infrastructure and building damage. We also assess whether other causes of damage are present.

Building movement is often caused by complex interactions between the founding soil properties, site management and water use by root systems.

Understanding how these factors influence buildings and infrastructure is critical to identifying causal factors and resolving or minimising the damage.
