Construction Exposed Tree Roots for 3 Years

leslieames added on August 29, 2015 | Answered

I read all your articles about not covering naturally exposed tree roots with dirt. My situation is I had to have some grading done about 3 years ago, which exposed a 40 year old Pine tree roots. The thing I am worried about is about 2 months ago (before I read your article), I covered two roots about 4" in diameter to a depth of 6" to one foot of dirt to install retaining wall 2 months ago. Should I go back an uncover roots?

The amount of soil that you covered the surface roots with should not cause an issue.
