RE THE articles about the tree man, Mr Mark Snow, who I fully support.
Some years ago my daughter and family had a similar problem, discovered when we re-laid the drive to their house in Hackness Road. I cut off the root that had wrapped itself round their drain pipe and re-laid the drive.
Trees usually have more than one root, and can survive with other roots to feed them. That tree was there I think before the development of the complainants’ house, so should be preserved.
