In our flat, we have 4 Ashoka trees between the building and the compound. The age of the building and the trees are around 30 years. I would like to know whether the roots of Ashoka trees affect the building? Pls advice.

Is that the local name for the tree or is that the proper name, I have never heard of a tree that name so if you can find another name someone else may be able to help you out. Kindest Regards. WeeNel.

Doug Thank you so much, I've followed the link you gave and WOW, what a beautiful tree, these in picture have obviously been cared for and pruned / cut to keep the shape they are in BUT, I could get used to looking out any window and seeing those wonderful tight but shapely trees any day long.LOL
I've learned something new today so again, many thanks for taking the time to help me out, very much appreciated.
Best Regards. WeeNel.

Natarajan, so sorry but I cant fine any ref for the named tree with the exception of the info just received from Doug9345, it was a wonderful sight to see the pictures of the tree's you enquired about BUT as regards how far the roots can spread, I cant help with that BUT maybe IF you do a search like Doug, you will be able to pick up even more info,
Also search on this site for tree ID and you never know, someone somewhere may be able to help you out or maybe even grow them.
Best of luck. WeeNel.
