The Silver Birch tree at the end of my property seems to have roots that extend beyond the front of my house (No 20) as shown in photographs when Cadent had to dig through my path. Please can someone come and investigate this as soon as possible as I am concerned that this could be causing damage to the property (not just the identified root), I would prefer that this was investigated by yourselves, rather than contacting my buildings insurance.
