Although T&CPA exempts trees directly in the way of development where
full planning permission has been granted, strictly speaking it is only
the root system of this tree that would be directly in the way of this
extension and there are alternatives to strip foundations that would
mean the trees' root system would not be so severely damaged.

Hi Ruth

In my recent experience, pile and beam foundations are designed to protect
the builing from tree roots not the other way round.  The trenches
required are deep enough to cut through all but the deepest roots.

Please correct me, someone, if I have this wrong.
