I am having two neighboring maple trees removed to make way for a septic leach field. It is an optional removal. They will not be able to be excised once the delicate piping etc. will be put in. Will I have more standing water on the ground now that the trees, and roots are not there to use excess water? The trees are about 20 feet from the house.
It is difficult to answer your question without actually seeing the site. Trees do absorb a substantial amount of water from the soil but other factors may play a larger role in your situation. (soil type, water table depth, grade, etc.). Make an appointment today and we will be happy to stop at your property to more carefully assess the situation.
