There's a cinder block fence with my neighbor that is leaning into their property. A tree stump and its roots are the probably causes. The tree roots are probably making the wall lean. The tree stump is about 2 ft in diameter. There is also a crack in the wall.
What's the best way to remedy the situation? If I got rid of the stump and the roots, is there a way to force the wall back to center again?
I've removed the stump and ground it up as much as I can. Now I see that the roots are really close to the wall and go underneath. It's been many months since I ground down the stump. What is the best way to get rid of the rest?
- I've used an ax...takes forever.
- I've drilled holes and filled it with epsom salt and water...didn't do that much.
- The latest technique is using an electric chain saw. Hard to maneuver around the masonry and the dirt ground.
