Tree Roots
Trees can be beautiful and enhance a property. But, as all living things do, they grow. When trees grow, their roots penetrate farther into the earth. As they grow, they may grow through anything that is in their way that has been buried underground. When you’re planting trees, you can be mindful of underground lines, but if you already have trees on your property, what do you do?

Damage to Sewer Lines
As the tree roots grow, it is possible for them to grow into your sewer lines and cause problems. When this happens, you may notice water pooling in your yard or what appears to be a clogged drain. As residential plumbers, we have seen this type of issue time and time again. There’s not much you can do to prevent tree roots from growing into your lines, aside from removing the tree. So, when you run into trouble, give us a call.
