TREE ROOTS TYPICALLY EXTEND, ROUGHLY, 1 TO 1 1/2 FEET FROM A TREE FOR EVERY INCH OF THE WIDTH OF THE TREE’S TRUNK, MEASURED 4 FEET FROM THE GROUND. BECAUSE THE SOIL UNDER SIDEWALKS IS NOT COMPACTED, ROOTS GROW THERE. ROOTS FROM A LARGE TREE GROWING TOO CLOSE TO A CONCRETE SIDEWALK MAY EVENTUALLY BUCKLE THE CONCRETE. THERE ARE ALSO LIMITS TO HOW MUCH YOU CAN PRUNE TREE ROOTS TO REPAIR A SIDEWALK WITHOUT DESTROYING THE TREE.

THAT IS WHY WE SUGGEST ALLOWING OUR EXPERTS AT PCS TO DO IT FOR YOU. IN MOST CASES, WE CAN GRIND DOWN THE ROOT AND REPAIR THE CONCRETE, OR REMOVE IT ENTIRELY, WITHOUT ANY DAMAGE TO THE TREE.
