Some help please....

Question

Hi,

 

I would like some help with identifying a couple of trees. One directly outside a house we are thinking of moving to and a larger one slightly further along the road outside the neighbouring property.

Obviously, possible subsidence issues spring to mind! Any advice would be welcome.

Can you zoom into the leaves of the first one a bit more? Looks more like a lime to me but very hard to tell.

Hi, two closer photos. I hope this helps.....

Do these tend to cause issues?

What sort of issues are you concerned about? Subsidence? It all depends on the soil type and what you plan on doing with the tree and where? Subsidence usually occurs where you have a large tree, close to the house in clay soil. A large enough tree will pull enough water from clay soil that it shrinks leading to subsidence. 

 

The small one outside is so small that I would be amazed if it ever caused any issues. It's also far enough from the property that I wouldn't say it could cause any damage. Worst possible scenario is it gets a lot bigger, shrinks the soil and you have a small dip in the driveway as a result. Hard to see where the other one is located distance wise but I would suggest it's so far away that I wouldn't be remotely concerned. Where abouts is the property? If you give me a street name and location I could tell you the soil type
