Don’t plant shrubs or trees near your septic!
Do Not plant trees or bushes anywhere near your septic system or sewer lines.
Its crazy to think that tree roots can bust through cement septic tanks. There have been many that we have had to saw the roots out of though! This is a picture of a sewer line that had a crack in it and a holly bush decided to take over the inside of the line. There was absolutely no use to this system.
