You cannot plant trees over the percolation area of a septic drainage system. You can plant near the tank itself because the roots cannot penetrate the tank, but the percolation area drains can become blocked by roots.

If you go to our Plant finder in  Know-how you will be able to select a range of plants according to their needs and features.
