I have two leylandii trees growing within 2/3 metres of my house. They are about 16 feet in height, The trees were planted by the previous owner. I have had them lopped a few times, but they quickly grow back.
I am worried about the tree roots affecting the house foundations possibly causing subsidence or maybe drain damage by making the soil dry out.
If the trees were reduced in size to 6/7 feet would this alleviate the problem or do the trees need to be completely removed?
Any answers appreciated.
