Aim of the course:

The aim of the course is to provide a programme that allows Arboricultural attendees to go away with sufficient understanding of how a claim to fell a tree implicated in subsidence should be processed in relation to:

  • Understanding the insurance prospective

  • Undertaking a desk top study of available data

  • Data interpretation

  • Making a site visit

  • Mitigating the damage caused


The programme will cover the following issues:

  • Subsidence a persistent problem

  • What is Heave

  • Preliminary actions in an alleged case of subsidence

  • Diagnosing subsidence problems

  • Trees and desiccation

  • Subsidence monitoring

  • Interpretation of laboratory  and monitoring results

  • Mitigating subsidence damage in relation to tree works

Each candidate will be able to take away with them a template that can be used to methodically work through a claim and allow conclusions to be drawn and thereafter can present these to other parties such as LA solicitors as a means of seeking a permanent solution to the claim.

Included in the course: buffet lunch, disk of templates and workbook for candidates to take away to help them complete Subsidence reports on their own. 

A Certificate of Attendance will be provided
We look forward to seeing you at our Syston Training Centre!
