First, it might be best to understand how a tree root system develops. Tree seedlings form a tap root that stretches downward and anchors the plant into the ground. Branching off the tap root are many finer lateral roots that spread out parallel to the ground surface above. Roots intertwine and combine to strengthen its support system. Generally, most tree roots are thick and woody near the trunk and taper out into thinner fibers as they grow away from the trunk.

When hiring a tree root removal company, it is best to hire a trusted team for their extensive overall knowledge of the management and cultivation of trees in horticulture. It is estimated that a mature tree could have 500 million live root tips. The expanse of a tree root system can exceed up to three times the size of the tree’s canopy, achieving up to 12 feet or more from the trunk. These massive tree root systems seek out the easiest path to water and nutrients. In this process, they will barrel through just about anything to ensure survival. Trees play a vital role in our environment and removing a tree or its roots is a serious process.
