Cottonwood Tree

We have a 40 year old cottonwood tree 12 feet from our house. Should it be removed because of the closeness to our house and/or damage to our house foundation? Sincerely, Jean Caskey

Have you noticed any issues with your septic system? This can be tricky. I would have it looked at by a professional tree service to see if they recommend removing it. If the roots are large enough they can do some damage, but there can also be damage done by removing a large tree. Talk to your local tree services to see what they recommend.
