Tree Roots causing damage. Property owners commenced proceedings against the local authority for nuisance and negligence in allowing tree roots to undermine the foundations of their property, resulting in damage. They relied on evidence of a single joint expert that the damage had been caused by heave or the trees. The Technology and Construction Court dismissed the claim on the basis that the claimants had failed to establish that the trees had caused the damage.
