Can I salvage these trees?
So we moved into our house a couple of months ago. We have a maple growing about 20 feet from the house and 40-50 feet from the septic tank. We also have the little paved loop with an oak growing in it.
Both of these tree placements seem to be problematic in the long term - the maple being too close to the foundation and septic, the oak for buckling the pavement near it.
My guess is these were planted as small plants in 2005/6 but they aren't more than 7 or 8 feet high at this point. How big/established is too big to remove these trees and transplant them somewhere more agreeable? Or are they a lost cause and I should plan to chop them in a few years as I get landscaping to what I want? I don't really know when they were planted b/c the house was a foreclosure so I can't ask the previous owners.
