bet you a dollar that the sod you lay wont live, the water oak will pull all the water and kill the grass, at least that is what happened in my back yard
Just be a good neighbor and cut them clean and vertical so they can heal. To cut part way and then tear them horizontally will leave the roots susceptible to disease
quote:yeah they do. my mow mow had one in her back yard that i built a tree house in when i was a young whipper snapper. i have spent many hours dedicated to eradicating that species from the property since i was old enough to run a power saw.
Those trees send roots really, really far.
