invasive silver maple roots

Zone 35763 | gtyarbrough66 added on May 18, 2018 | Answered

My neighbor has several mature silver maple trees on his property, the roots are invading my yard and are now found to be in the crawl space of my home. What can I do to kill the roots? I also think that they are already to the fieldlines.

Talk to your neighbor about the problem. He/she may want to consult an arborist for the best approach to solve this problem. It makes more sense to severe the roots than poison them which could affect the tree itself and leave you open to legal issues.
