Acacia Trees

Root System of Bailey Acacia


Linda.outside2016 added on April 15, 2016 | Answered

Our tree was planted as a young tree about 5 years ago. Our neighbor was told by her gardener that our tree killed her shrub that was about 30 years old. I believe it was a Photinia about 5 feet tall. Do the roots of our Acacia grow down deep or spread out?
