I have had to remove a few cherry tree roots. In doing so I had so I dug a trench. Anyhow just as I was fillling in the trench I noticed a wall at one end. Obviously I then had to dig a bit further. It seems to consist of cream bricks, is very straight . I am not sure how deep or long it is.
I really want to uncover it and see what it is, but fear doing so will cause further distress to my neighbour's wretched cherry tree.
Is there a way to dig around tree roots and not harm them further? Or will excavating the wall harm them just because the roots will be exposed?
The wretched tree has already had its owner dig a swimming pool well within the root spread, and had me removing four 2" to 3" roots. I have left a deeper very soft one for now. But it will need to be removed. I intend to sever that root right up as close to hte garage as possible. We also want some major pruning done this year, removing anything hanging over our property, especially that which canopies our garage roof.
I know leaving the walls secrets hidden in the ground will be really hard!
