A pending High Court claim will focus on the responsibility of the Department of Transport (DoT) for damage caused to roadside properties by tree roots. Jonathan Perkins of Romford, Essex is suing the DoT for up to £100,000 in respect of tree-root damage to his property. When the case reaches court he will accuse the DoT of negligence and breach of statutory duty in respect of its alleged failure to manage and control the trees in a way that would prevent the damage. The damage is said to have first occurred in 1995 and to have continued ever since.
