  • These are getting biger and more of them, even starting to grow out of drains. longer it takes to repair, the more damage and cost to repair will be. this is all from the roots of a tree that was cut down

  • Trees are now growing up through the drains. This could possible impact water pipes. And other pipe/drains. This needs immediate attention.
