We know that the root of the tree especially those bigger ones can be very common to see everywhere. There are bigger and older trees that their roots are already can be seen on the ground and it causes too much damage to your property. Most of the homeowners would remove this one by digging it up or they call someone to do it for them. The process of tree trimming would not always be a good solution. It would need to be removed totally in order to prevent possible unpleasant things from happening. Most especially to the trees that are located very near to the house or structure. There could be some water pipes or drainage that might be affected by this. But doing this by your own could be that very simple. It would need more people to dig it totally and completely. There are some methods that you are going to do that they can’t be good for the tree. It may kill the trees or may destroy the whole part of the ground. Resulting in this, there is a big possibility that you will have to remove the whole part of the tree. That is the reason why you need to follow the right ways in removing the roots of the tree, in this way it would not cause any trouble to you and to the tree as well.  


  1. Inspect the one that you want to be removed. In choosing for the part make sure not to cut too close to the tree trunk as it may result to not being stable of the tree and there would be a higher chance that the tree will fall down.  
  2. Do not choose the one that is already big enough. Removing them would cause the tree to be unstable and may cause damage to the overall structure.  
  3. Do not cut all the roots of the trees. You have to do it one at a time. You need to make sure that you will not cut more than 20 percent of the roots total number. In this way, the tree would not die and still be able to live in fine condition.  
  4. If you are not so sure about it. Then, you might be consulting someone who is an expert to this. Especially about the estimated number and area of cutting the roots. You don’t want to mess up so it would be better to get someone who has the licensed in cutting trees. You could someone from the local department of your city. Doing this thing without prior knowledge would not be very good as it may result to a lot of damage. Hiring someone means they have the complete tools, machines, and equipment that you don’t have. They know exactly where to start and what to do first. Cutting them well and digging the area is one of their many skills. All you have to do is to watch them and relax while they are doing their job.
