Cut Woody Roots

The woody roots have been cut for the roadway (blue arrows).  Trees must have support on the backside of a lean.  While these trees have been side pruned (red arrow) and weight is away from roadway, there is another road to consider just to the right of this road. 









Here you can see that the trees have begun to fail.  They are falling away from the cut woody roots.
