Blog - Overcoming building & tree issues

Trees can add value and beauty to their environment. But when they are in close proximity with a surrounding structure they can cause structural problems to your home and can even become the source of neighbourly disputes.
 
We inspect many properties with trees that affect adjacent structures. We assess if the tree is having a direct or indirect influence and accordingly recommend procedures to address the cause and remediate the damage.

Trees and structural damage

Structural problems occur when large tree roots displace building footings. This generally causes cracks in walls. Trees also indirectly influence nearby structures when it “drinks” water from reactive clay foundations. Structural problems begin to occur when soil moisture fluctuations brought about by the tree combine with footings that have not been constructed to Australian Standard.

Trees adjacent to retaining structures induces increasing surcharge loads as the tree grows and increases in weight, adding unexpected load onto a retaining structure. Roots from growing trees also add lateral pressures having an adverse effect. Trees can also cause problems to retaining structures when tree roots cause fractures in drainage works, thus inducing reactive soils to expand. This can lead to retaining wall failure.

MJ Civil does not condone tree removal and we endeavour to implement methods that avoid such removal. However, we have made applications to counsel on behalf of our clients to remove trees in areas we determine is necessary.

If your property is experiencing distress from nearby trees, MJ Civil would be glad to inspect your property and assist in remedying such causes.

    Trees are very beneficial for our environment and for us as well because due to that we can have the fresh air and the building structures always become hurdle due to this trees and if we try to cut them so we should plant another tree for the replacement of Cheap Essays that thing and if we cut all trees so our society will be effected with the global warming issues which are not good for health, so we should prevent this thing and build up a new plan for that purpose.

    I don’t think we could cut all the trees and make the buildings here. The roots of the trees are still there and it will replace the wall footings and cause cracks to occur in the buildings. Glad that you are providing services to overcome these worries.oil change
