Tree subsidence damage occurs as roots extract moisture from clay soils. Shrinkable clay soils reduce in volume when sufficient moisture is extracted. If this occurs to soils beneath a building then the foundations may sink and subside, causing tree subsidence damage. Whether or not this is likely to happen will depend on many complex inter-related factors including species of tree, size and vigour of tree, proximity of tree to the building/structure, type of soil beneath foundations and the depth, type and quality of foundations.
