Reasons For Tree Root Removal
Removal is viable for roots damaging essential structures or pose safety risks
If a tree begins to grow in undesirable places, like into a sewer line, septic tank, or beneath a sidewalk, it’s crucial to trace it back to the tree’s base. If the root is large in diameter (more than 2 inches), removal may stop the tree from obtaining valuable nutrients and water that it needs to stay alive and flourish. However; if it’s a smaller root (less than 2 inches in diameter), it can most likely be pruned without any consequences. A general guideline is that roots 3-5 times the diameter away away from the tree are safe for pruning. Roots that are closer to the trunk or fused to the trunk can not be touched – they are integral to the tree’s health and structure. If the root has been assessed as minor, we can then mark off the area to be cut. Next, we dig around and along the root line to expose as much of it as possible. After exposing the roots, we use shears or saws to prune the root carefully. When removing the root, we install a root barrier in front of the area we want to protect. This barrier acts to prevent the root from growing back or growing offshoots in the same direction. We will refill the excavated area and level it out. Depending on the location on the property, we can also reseed and water the patch to make sure grass and other plant-life grow back quickly. It’s important to understand that root removal should only be an option if roots are physically damaging or infringing on essential structures. If you’re interested in removing a root for purely aesthetic reasons, there are other techniques that can address that.
Tree Root Removal Services You Can Trust
As tree roots grow out of heavily established trees, they can wreak havoc with pipes and sewage lines, in the worst cases causing pipes to burst especially if they have been already damaged. They’ve been known to ‘erupt’ under concrete sidewalks and cause tripping and falling accidents. If they’re growing close to water pipes they absorb the water and just get bigger! You want to avoid this so that there are clean lines between your trees, your pipes, and your sidewalk. Problem roots can take over your garden, feeding on all the organic material, causing your other plants to die.
Tree root removal is often needed at the same time as stump grinding or stump removal. Katy Tree Pros will assess your removal needs and deploy our first-class equipment and personnel accordingly.
