I have planted some Australian bush cherry trees in a garden above a retaining wall. How tall do these tress grow and will their root systems damage the wall in time? They are about 4m in height.



Hi Sanmer, and welcome to G O Y , i'm sorry I don't know these, but as a general rule, the roots will have the same spread as the branches, so if they're very close to the wall I would think that at some stage you're going to get some damage to the wall, Derek.
