persimmon tree roots and septic lines/tanks
I am starting a small orchard of persimmon trees. The area that I am looking at planting them has a plastic pipe for the septic tank that runs out to the spetic field. The pipe is 4feet down, the distance of this pipe is over 100feet. This pipe will run through the orchard area. I know not to plant trees on the septic field. How close can I plant persimmon trees to the pipe? Are the roots on a persimmons the type that fan out looking for water like a willow does or are they more like a tap rooted tree with some side roots?
