Tree roots damaging my drain internally

Sent to Warwick District Council 4 minutes later

I have called my housing association out to have a look at a blocked drain and on inspection of inside the drain they have informed me that the roots from a large tree on your property are causing the sidewalks of the drain to collapse they have advised me to contact you and request that the tree is removed and the roots are killed before the drain collapses, as it's on your property they will not remove it. I understand that trees are important to the planet but I'm worried that if it's not sorted now that there is a good possibility that it will cause damage to my home Thank you and I look forward to your reply

  • Nothing has been done with this fault the council came out looked at the tree and told me there was no issue, they didnt even have a look at the damage being caused to my property and when i contacted the council again they asked me to send photos which i did but since then i have heard nothing
