I want to plant couple of trees in front of my house about 1.5 feet from the front gate. But my contractor says tree roots will later damage sump and sanitary lines etc. Is this true? If that is case no one will plant trees at all. I refused to agree but wanted to check here so that in the future neighbours should not object and ask to cut down the trees. Also what kind of trees are best suited given this situation?
Any help will be apprecited.
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
