Tree root intrusion is one of the most common problems with tree root removal. Root intrusion often leads to sewer lines bursting. The root intrusion cause isn’t always the tree itself; it could be the root ball collapsing on the sewer line because of excessive pressure from the base of the tree’s roots. In severe cases, roots can actually damage the pipe, so if the tree is very large, you may have to completely replace the entire pipe or system. Other causes of tree root intrusion can be caused by poor soil or poor drainage. If your drain is backed up in areas that are dry and sandy, then you may need to adjust the drainage for the entire house.

Tree roots can also cause drainage problems. If the drain pipes are made of clay, it can make it difficult for water to flow through them. If your drainage system isn’t working properly, then your sewer line is also likely to be clogged. Clogging in drains can lead to more serious sewer issues.
No matter the cause of tree root intrusion, you need to have your drain system inspected by a professional tree service company. They will be able to check for any structural damages, evaluate the root intrusion, and then determine if it needs to be replaced or repaired. If you live in a region that has poor tree conditions, then you may need to take root intrusion issues into consideration, since they can be a major problem.
