Why You Should Prune Tree Roots

In addition to the problematic damage that tree roots can cause, there are several other reasons that you may want to prune your tree’s roots.

It’s not just current structures that may be affected by root growth. Out-of-control roots also can impact your ability to build in the future. If you’re planning on building an extension, pool, or another addition to your land, letting your trees’ roots run wild often causes complications.

Roots can also damage other plants or foliage on your property. If a tree can exert itself into other areas of your land, it might restrict the growth of rival plants. Trimming a tree’s roots also can help you control the size of the tree when you believe it’s growing too big.

While it may seem like an unnecessary cost, pruning your roots can save you a considerable amount of money when you consider the damage they can cause. It’s always a good idea to use an experienced team to assess the potential status of your trees’ roots. Don’t try to take matters into your own hands, because you can end up in worse shape than you began.

Types of Damage Caused by Tree Roots

Many people don’t realize how many problems tree roots can cause on their properties. If you give your tree’s roots the freedom to grow, they often cause a wide range of problems for commercial and residential property owners. Let’s take a look at some common forms of damage associated with root growth:

Foundation Damage

Your home’s foundation is one of its most imperative components. Because your house rests on your foundation, it’s the very core of your home’s structure. While roots won’t typically cause enormous problems for your foundation on their own, they can enter cracks and cause additional structural issues.

Pavement Damage

It’s not just your foundation that’s at risk of tree-root damage. You may also find that pavement around your home is cracked due to root overgrowth. Roots are much closer to the surface than many people realize, and they can often cause upward pressure on your sidewalks and driveways.

If you want to avoid the hassle of replacing uneven or cracked pavement, pruning your roots is a cost-effective way to prevent the cracking out of the gate.

Pipe Damage

While many homeowners already know that tree roots can cause foundation and pavement damage, few realize that roots also pose a problem for underground water pipes. If roots apply too much pressure to a water pipe, they can break it.

But a root doesn’t need to break a pipe to cause issues. If a pipe has even a small crack, the end of root will be attracted to the water leaking from the pipe. Eventually, the root may enter the pipe and have unlimited access to a water supply, triggering speedy growth that results in a costly blockage.

Cost of Root Pruning in Tampa

The cost of root pruning depends on the size of the job and the complexity of your root system. There’s no fixed cost associated with this service, but it can range anywhere from $300 to $1000+. The price will also vary depending on how difficult it is to access your trees’ roots, and whether they are already affecting your pipes or foundation.
