Sissoo Plants, Also called the Indian Rosewood. Many in Arizona plant them because of how lush it is, but don’t know the whole story. They only grow 35-40 feet in total. Even at that considerably small height for a tree, they can have a significant impact on everything around them. Their invasive roots can block sidewalks, irrigation lines, and even other people's lawns. Even experts of horticulture dread over how difficult it is to get rid of, and how much of a headache it is in the first place. But they do have their appeal. They offer shade in the harsh temperatures of Arizona, they also don’t require too much water once they are planted and growing. But, getting rid of them is no picnic. These are invasive roots that need to be removed! Call us today: 480-504-1101
It’s not as easy as just taking a chainsaw to the base and having away with it. Even as a stump, they will continue to impose sprouts, as if unphased. They can even stretch up to 100 feet from the original stump. So planting one tree is almost like getting more for your money, considering 5 more will probably come right after. Then you might need stump removal on the extra trees.
They aren’t inherently bad trees, either. They just aren’t wise to plant with limited space. Sissoo plants will go wherever they want, and a 20 square foot yard isn’t enough. Especially when they can be detrimental to the space below, and even beyond. The removal of these aggressive trees require someone who knows what they’re doing. We will remove them!
