How To Prevent Tree Roots From Entering Your Sewer Pipes

If you are thinking about planting trees in your home or property, you need to consider the location you plant them. A tree's roots can grow into your sewer pipes over time, especially if your home's sewer lines are made from older materials. To prevent these tree roots from eventually growing and entering your drains, they should be planted at least 10 feet away from your drain and sewer pipes. It is also advisable to avoid fast growing trees and opt for slow growing species instead.

Water together with the nutrients that drainage pipes carry can draw the roots of nearby trees towards them. Over time the roots grow larger, and they can clog and break the pipes. What’s worse is that most homeowners do not know that this is happening until the drainage system is completely backed up.

Trees have many benefits around the home. They provide shade and block out unwanted views but tree roots are invasive and can damage your drain and sewer pipes.
