Which Trees Cause Most Subsidence?

Answer

The trees that cause the most subsidence are not listed but there are various facts about subsidence. Trees only cause subsidence on shrinkable soils. In practice, this means on clays. If you are on a sandy soil, for example, tree related subsidence simply doesn't happen. Tree related subsidence involves many variables and is consequently almost impossible to predict
