Hi Jim,
Yes, Oak roots identified under the foundations.
Pretty much all the evidence is there to implicate the Oak.
Cheers

 The obvious question is whether there are roots beneath the foundations?

Trial pits dug, soils tested etc already.
I was just hoping to pass on the heave risk assessment to someone else (who 
is better insured).

 In which case you do need a trail pit!

Hi Jim,
The Oak is probably about 70-80 years older than the (subsidence damaged) 
bungalow.
I was worried about recommending the Oak to be felled - before checking 
whether or not heave might occur after the expected recovery.
Cheers

 When subs has occurred the removal of the offending tree is usually 
recommended by insurers as the correcting action.
The mechanism that causes heave is different to subsidence - the reverse of 
subs is re-wetting.
I don't know the circs of your case but don't get the two confused.

Hi All,
Does anyone know a good firm who undertakes heave risk assessments?
A bungalow has subsided, a mature Oak (much older than the bungalow) growing 
a few metres away on heavy clay soil is almost certainly the main cause, but 
I need to check on the risk of heave before advising further.
Cheers
