I wanted to know what building foundation structural damage risks does Grevillea Robusta and Melaleuca Viminalis root systems possess. The building foundation i’m talking about is reinforced cement concrete (rcc). So over a span of now and 50 to 100 years, would this trees cause any structural damage?
Thank you in advance!
Hi Jyosh, If you mean that the house is built on a concrete slab, there is no significant chance of any problems. Don.
