Q.Planting A Cassia Tree On A Septic Drain Field

Zone Ormond Beach, FL | StanDriscoll added on June 14, 2020 | Answered

I planted a standardized Cassia tree over a new septic drain field. The system is about 3-ft below grade. The Cassia is growing into a huge healthy ball and blooms twice a year. My question is, have I made a big mistake and the roots have gone into the drain field?

More than likely. This tree has quite the root system, and will easily clog septic lines and systems.

I would contact your local extension service for help in this situation:
