Maple tree root system
Asked Sep 22, 2003, 07:46 AM
I have a large maple tree in my backyard right behind my house. Whoever planted it there must not have been thinking because it is very close to the house. The branches extend out over my roof at least 10 feet. I need to know if this tree is going to cause some problems to my basement wall or not. There is also a sidewalk between the tree and the house. The sidewalk is only about three-four feet from the tree trunk. I really like this tree and don't want to cut it down but I will if I have no choice.
Please Help so I don't have to!!
