Recently I have looked at a number of subsidence claims involving Oak trees, 
when the application is submitted a DNA sample and results is provided, a 
number of times Sweet Chestnut root DNA is in the list of species. A search 
of the surrounding area has shown as no trees being present locally, this 
might be obvious but does anyone know why Sweet chestnut appears to be in the 
majority of subsidence documentation in the DNA results?
