Excavation adjacent to large Sugar Maple
The City is going to install a new water service to my home and will need to excavate to a depth of about 7.5 feet within the drip line adjacent to the trunk of this Sugar Maple. The top of the excavation would be approximately 14 x 14 due to oversizing. What will be the damage done to the tree? Will it survive? What would need to be done to reduce impact if possible? Thank you!
