Charleston, SC, March 27, 2011 - Premiere Tree Service of Charleston Offers Advice on Tree Roots Damage. Something that many property owners may not realize is that tree roots can create some really big problems they may not be aware of. Some of these problems can quickly lead to expensive repair work for an unwary property owner.
Roots from trees and water lines often grow into buried pipes such as waterlines, sewer lines, drainage pipes and culverts. If these pipes are old and rusty or made of materials such as clay or brick roots can break through and interfere with them. "This can end up costing a property owner tens of thousands of dollars because it will probably be necessary to have a contractor dig up the pipes and replace them", says the tree expert of Premiere Tree Service of Charleston.
This means it is always a good idea to keep trees of areas where there are buried pipes. For example it is a good idea not to plant trees near buried pipes and to cut down trees growing close to pipes. Roots will often grow close to pipes because roots are how the tree gets water.
Something else to be aware of is that a tree growing quickly can often be a sign of a leaky pipe. If the pipe is cracked the roots will often grow into the crack and make the problem worse.
Trees and Septic Systems
Tree roots can also grow into septic systems and interfere with their operation. For example tree roots can grow into the leaching system or into the pipes leading into the system. Tree roots can often wreck havoc with older septic systems that have cement tanks and rusty iron sewer pipes.
If your property has a septic system and a leaching field: find out where it is. Then look at the area and make sure no trees are growing too close to it. If they are you should probably remove them to create the roots from creating a problem.
Do the same for any tree growing close to your well. Trees can also interfere with older wells, especially those with concrete walls.
