Trees bring us many benefits. From giving us shade to filtering the air that we breathe, trees give us so many things that we could not even imagine. However, if we fail to give them the proper care they deserve, they can be destructive in return. Most often than not, poor maintenance brings about these problems with our trees that is why proper caring is important.
Damage Property Structures
Although roots grow slowly, they can apply pressure where they are situated. They move through the ground to look for water and nutrients it needs to thrive and this can result in the displacement of the soil surrounding them. This will cause the soil to weaken which can eventually cause the building to shift. If the ground moves, anything on its surface also moves. We know how a collapsed building can damage everything in and around it, so it is best to prevent this catastrophic event from happening by proper maintenance.
If your tree is particularly close to a building, it is wise to have it removed by a professional tree removal service. Don't try doing it yourself because it might cause more harm than good. When experts see that the roots of the tree can cause potential problems in your residence, especially in your property, they will have it removed immediately.
Damage Plumbing Systems
Trees are attracted to the drainage system that takes out water and sewage. This is especially true in areas that lack in rainfall. Willow and maple trees are especially intrusive. Their roots extend as far as it needs to search for nutrients and water. Roots easily grow into pipes because they are big enough to allow roots in. These roots eventually block the pipes totally up to a point where it will no longer function properly.
