Tree roots

Eoin O Briain asked 6 years ago

I’m planning a new build the site has been chosen (not in Dublin) but there are approx 150 year old, 50-60 foot tall beech and chestnut trees on the site, could you recommend a safe distance the house should be from these trees root wise? Going at least the height of the trees from the house anyway.

Roots are not an issue at that distance or indeed any distance if the foundations are properly built.
