HUGE Tree Root Removed in Pewaukee (Picture)

Pewaukee drain cleaningA storm sewer drain clog cleaning in Pewaukee yielded this monster root. The tree root was discovered among the culprits of a massive clog during the Wisconsin basement flooding epidemic this April.

When high-pressure water jet cutting was insufficient to get the root mass removed, Roto-Rooter Milwaukee drain cleaning operations manager Ben Huth used a special cutting tip called the wart hog to solve the problem.

Milwaukee Roto-Rooter gained another submission to their national “monster root” series on their Facebook page after we took a picture of this root mass. Our root was about 8 feet long and 4 or 5 inches in diameter, making it the biggest root found in Southeastern Wisconsin so far in 2013.

Roto-Rooter drain cleaning experts can clear root masses without harming the tree, leaving “Root-X” coating inside pipes. Root-X prevents tree roots from growing into your drain pipes, killing the root fibers on contact without harming the overall root system or the tree above.
