Tree root barriers are a potential alternative option to tree removals and engineered solutions in subsidence damage claims. They usually offer considerable cost advantages relative to underpinning allowing problem trees to be retained resulting in significant amenity, environmental and ecological benefits.

However, root barriers are not always viable in urban and suburban situations.  Consideration needs to be given to the ongoing structural stability of the affected building together with the future health and stability of retained trees, requiring expert arboricultural advice.

We have many years of proven expertise and experience in installing root barriers of varying lengths and depths in a wide variety of often challenging situations.

Each project is based on individual site appraisal with bespoke design, specification and method statements being drafted accordingly.

Our Services Include:

  • Site specific design
  • Full project management including stakeholder negotiations
  • Highly efficient mitigation with minimal home owner disruption
  • A highly cost effective alternative to traditional engineered solutions
  • Amenity, environmental and ecological benefits


“Thank you so much MWA Arboriculture for the Homebuyer – Mortgage Report you produced for us. We bought the house and have followed your advice and removed the conifer. Now we have more light in our front room and the risk of subsidence has been removed!”

Mrs Stockbridge


“Just to say that I don’t deal with MWA usually, as I don’t case handle. However, I have found the service of you and your colleagues fantastic on this and a few other claims.”

“MWA Arboriculture Ltd…were excellent – did survey on 12/15 hours’ notice and the completed report was with us within one working day of payment. Made a massive difference as the original surveyors report was massively flawed!!”
