Thank you for your enquiry. You have contacted us because you believe that roots from a Borough tree are causing damage to a light structure within your property, (footpaths, garden walls, driveways, fences etc).
I must therefore ask you to complete excavation works to expose the root that is affecting this structure and then contact our Insurance Department. Please quote any reference numbers relating to your enquiry at this time. The Insurance Department will advise you accordingly and may send an Arboriculturalist to inspect and produce a report which will be considered by the Council’s Insurance Department.
If it is not possible to expose the roots then please contact us anyway as an officer may inspect, however the more evidence provided the easier it will be for our insurance section to evaluate your claim.
