To avoid tree roots in pipes, trees should be at least 10 feet away from your 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 draws the roots of nearby trees. Over time the tree roots continue to grow longer and they damage and clog the pipes. What’s worse is that most homeowners do not know that this is happening until the drainage system is already completely backed up.
