Ask RiotACT: Tree roots invading property

By BillTed - 21 July 2016 8

Ask Riot

We have recently moved into a house. Our neighbour has a lovely tree but the tree roots are moving over to our property where it has lifted our driveway so much that there is now a 20cm ledge into our garage that our car has trouble getting into. The driveway has cracked and lifted to the point where it is unstable to walk on which is creating tripping hazards. We are also able to lift up big sections. We fear that the tree roots will eventually, if not already, gain access into any under ground drains and even destroy the structural integrity of the home.

Does anyone have any suggestions? Obviously I would like to talk to the neighbour about it but I would like to have a few solutions before that conversation rather than a “hey, this is your problem”.

Any help + advice is appreciated.
