Cutting Down Dead Tree

Anonymous added on December 2, 2010 | Answered

I have a dying tree near the house and need to have it cut down. Should I be concerned about the root system dying and erosion of the ground or house foundation?

No, this should not be a problem. Just make sure to plant grass or some other vegetation there in the near future so that as the root system decays, and is not able to hold the soil together, another root system takes its place in holding the soil.
