Root infiltration is a common issue faced by homeowners and property managers, causing blockages, backups and potential damage to plumbing systems. While trees may enhance the landscape's beauty, their roots pose a hidden threat beneath the surface. As they grow, they exploit any small cracks or joints in pipes, infiltrating sewer lines and wreaking havoc on drainage systems.
