I have lived peacefully for over 12 years with roots in my terracota
sewer line. every joint but one has roots, even under home, some 100
feet needing replacement:( at a cost of 10 grand or more:(
first do not kill the tree, if thats what you want fine, but have it
cut down. dont kill it, much bigger hazard and needs cut down anyway.
tree climbers charge more for dying trees, because of the greater
worse roots can go twice or 3 times the drip linew of the tree, you
might kill a neighbors prized tree
rock salt is my friend, 25 pound bag used perhaps 5 or 6 times a year.
cost under 20 bucks a year
start about now, in late winter when maximum root growth occurs. i
dumb in wash tub before going out for day. dissolve most and leave for
day the longer the better. our washing machine dumps in tub so it
dissolves the balance
the salt kills the roots but doesnt harm the trees.
$10,000 divided by 20 bucks a year:) Lets just say its free..........
