Tree Roots in Sewer Lines: Signs and Prevention

The moisture and nutrients that tree roots absorb inside a sewer line can promote healthier-than-normal growth. Sewer line blockages that increase in frequency and severity over time could also point to invasive plant roots.

The best way to prevent this problem is by locating trees and other deep-rooted plants far from the path of a subsurface sewer line. Periodic hydro jetting services can also be used to remove any roots that do find their way into the line.

Problems Caused by Roots in a Sewer Line

Tree root invasion can lead to serious sewer line back-ups, but the damage often goes much further than that. As the roots expand, they cause small cracks to widen into larger separations, and this could eventually contribute to a complete pipeline rupture. Roots also promote erosion by trapping high-strength wastewater in the pipe.
