Tree Related - Tree roots from a City owned tree have caused damage to my underground laterals. What should I do?
Tree roots rarely intrude or invade into underground laterals unless there is first a break in the lateral which would attract the roots. Old clay tiles do have a tendency to collapse from time to time and are not sealed in the same way as modern laterals and as a result of seepage, attract tree root growth in their direction.
