That's NHBC Practice note 3 1985, which was similar in most respects to Chapter 4.2 including foundation depth calculation method, based on Giles Biddle's work. Previous editions of 1969 and 74 were more basic and advocated maintaining appropriate distances between trees and buildings rather than deepening foundations, with some species recognised as being more problematic than others.
