Creating access to sewer blockage : repair and improve strategy in difficult scenario

sewer backup, landscape, tree stump

Very large pine tree way to close to house. Roots infiltrated vitrified sanitary pipe through joints of pipe. Luck was on the homeowners side as we were able to expose the cast iron pipe allowing blockage/broken unserviceable pipe to be repaired with new serviceable repair.
