Arboriculturist (Tree) Reports
An Arboricultural Report may be requested when there is concern that the roots of a tree or vegetation in close proximity of a property may be affecting, or may present a risk of affecting, the property's structural stability.
In order to assess the degree of risk it is essential to confirm:
- The exact species of the tree / vegetation.
- The distance of the tree / vegetation from the property.
- The depth of the foundations.
- The nature of the soil / clay to determine 'shrinkage potential'.
Upon collation of all of this information a professional decision can be made to determine the likelihood of the property suffering any damage as a result of the tree / vegetation.
Brewsters can arrange for reports to be prepared in accordance with NHBC standards.
