Can Bald Cypress Roots Attacking Concrete Supports For Deck Be Cut Back

Question From: O'Fallon, Missouri, United States
Q: My bald cypress tree roots are starting to attack my concrete supports holding up my deck ... Can I cut them back without hurting the tree. Thanks John K

A: I can't answer that John. I suggest you have an onsite assessment from a certified arborist. He/she may be able to give you some options. Best Nancy
