Remember, proceed with caution!

While trenchers are designed for digging through soil, some trencher blades allow you to cut through roots and other underground obstacles as well.

Without one of these blades. A small, walk-behind gasoline trencher will rip up roots up to about 2 inches in diameter, the bigger “Ditch Witch” trenchers with diesel engines can handle much larger roots (and it will actually “chew” through roots that won’t rip out much more chewing than cutting). It’s not a good idea to cut the roots of already damaged trees.

Also, roots that are more than two inches wide or close to the trunk should not be pruned, cut or dug through because they help anchor the tree. Tree age and species will also affect how the plant reacts.

Shut down the trencher immediately if teeth begin breaking off the blade, the blade becomes stuck or the blade chain breaks.

Before attempting to cut tree roots, talk to your arborist about what may or may not be safe for your tree. Your arborist can prune the roots for you, or you can follow our step-by-step guidelines for DIY root cutting.
