While trees are lovely for offering many benefits to the environment around us, no good can come from tree roots hindering your septic tank system. If there is some issue with your septic due to tree roots, you need to know of a good septic repair company in Arlington to help.
Trees are known for reducing stormwater runoff, providing homes for various wildlife, and offering incredible air quality benefits. Planting them around your home is an excellent way to help cut back on your energy costs by giving your house much-needed sunshade.
All areas around your septic system and the drain field carry extra nutrients, oxygen, and water. It just so happens that these are all the things the trees need and want to live. This can draw the tree roots closer to the septic elements, which could be an issue with the roots invading and causing leaks and clogs.
Try to avoid planting any trees around or in the area where the septic is. Grass will always be the best for covering the septic system, so be sure you avoid planting anything, even flowers, over the top of the septic region.
