Looking at the photos the idea the buildings were being damaged by trees 
staggered me. Yes, roots can spread well beyond the canopy, but there are 
limits – and these houses looked way beyond them. I don’t claim any arb 
expertise – but 2 weeks driving round the NE with Rodney Helliwel was quite 
an education – and he said, as I’m sure most of you will know, that insurance 
companies love to blame trees because its so much cheaper than solving the 
actual problem – this looks like a case in point.

I know this street.

The trees are a very nice part of it, and it significantly increases the 
nicety of this street as many close by are too narrow for any street trees.

Subsidence cases in the area are very rare.

I'd be more inclined to say that damage to buildings is more to do with 
building design, perhaps the trees having a slight influence.

Plenty of earthquakes around here also from collapsing mines!

Cheers

Dave

*"1:50 000 scale bedrock geology description: *Pennine Middle Coal Measures 
Formation - Mudstone, Siltstone And Sandstone. Sedimentary Bedrock formed 
approximately 310 to 318 million years ago in the Carboniferous Period. Local 
environment previously dominated by swamps, estuaries and deltas."

If it's like the mud/siltstone round here it'll be Low PI - mostly between 10 
& 20.
(Although we're on brownstones of the Old Red Sandstone rather than Coal 
Measures at Sneyd Green)

It needs proper arb and structural engineer investigation to prove the 
trees are responsible for the cracks in the houses.
Given size of trees I would err on the side of doubt it, but who knows.
