I digress, Sorry!
The Archers have nasty trees attacking DRAINS and
ripping them apart!
I thought tree roots were opportunists and would
exploit moisture and invade where breaks and cracks
exist.
If others agree, can we get in touch with the story
editor @BBC R4 and get them to write in an Arborist in
bright shining armour who will save the tree and carry
off any damsels in distress? Let's have the blame put
fairly and squarely on those who broke the pipes
through subsequent building work.

This disturbing story line seems to have drummed up quite a discussion
at
http://www.bbc.co.uk/cgi-perl/h2/h2.cgi?state=view&board=radio4.archstor

Most of the contributions seem to be concerned with the arrival of a man
on the Archers message board though!
