Roots can be a problem!

See the roots of this tree of ours in Goa is such a problem, its causing the wall infront to lift and crack. That is why we had to get Bhujang to cut back on them and then Basker the mason filled the cracks with cement. It's just a temporary measure, we cant really do much by cutting the roots as there are plenty of others under the wall which we cant see. But I refuse to cut the tree down.

  2. Your Observation is good but try planting one not cut even if it damages the little wall when there is no real danger to human life.

    Roots are like heart to trees. If you cut them then they die soon.

    Trees beautify our surroundings, purify our air, act as sound barriers, manufacture precious oxygen, and help us save energy through their cooling shade in summer and their wind reduction in winter.

  3. No cutting Atul. I will never cut it.
    It was planted by my Great Grandfather!
    But the whole wall was beginning to collapse, so we had to trim those as the wall was about to fall.
