St. Louis, MO (WiredPRNews.com) An overgrown tree with large expanding tree roots can affect more than just the aesthetics of a yard. Exposed surface roots can be a hazard to pedestrians, vehicle traffic and can be damaged by lawn mowers. In addition, if a tree with unruly roots is growing near a septic system or a sewer line it can cause major damage that can affect numerous people. Examples of tree that should not be planted near piping, sewer lines or septic fields include willow, maple, and elm.

The best solution for avoiding tree root problems is to plant farther away from problem areas to protect the safety of the tree as well as the surroundings.
