The wastewater in your house has to go somewhere when it goes down the drain. If you live in the city, it is likely that it goes into the sewer lines. If you aren't on the sewer lines, then you probably have a septic tank that the wastewater drains into. The septic tank is buried near your house, and then has a drain field where the water eventually filters out. In most cases, your septic tank and drain field will have no problems, but occasionally you might have problems with your tank, and those problems could be caused by the trees in your yard.
