Small luck there (glory press), looks like the house took the impact well.

Did the failure occur after a prolonged drought. In Australia l see many
more such failures occur after extended dry periods...?

I would like to hear from as many tree professionals as possible regarding
how proximity of a highway or other public or private paving in areas where
failure of the tree could be due, in part, to substandard root development
and/or root system damage caused by the construction of improvements that
affect tree health and related risk.

I am only concerned with the tree's welfare; I am not concerned with laws,
rules, and other conventions that are not based on solid, preferably
scientific, evidence.

I am finding that such proximity is often a factor in tree health and
failures.

Thanks in advance to all respondents.
