Unidentified Tree roots

Asked April 6, 2016, 7:56 PM EDT

I have a large tree root under the slab foundation in a home. In fact, it became so large it cracked the concrete foundation. We cannot determine what tree it is outside the home and before we cut down all the trees we would like to know what tree to focus on first. Can your team analyze the root if a sample is provided?

Thanks, Ken

Unfortunately there is no easy way to identify the tree. You would need to dig back soil from the roots at the foundation and attempt to trace it back to the tree it originated from.
