Answer: Unfortunately, it is never recommended that you plant trees or shrubs over a septic drainfield or close to its edges. The roots will potentially follow the moisture and enter the pipes and clog and destroy the system. A failed drainfield is very expensive to replace. Perhaps you have a gardening friend, a park or a school or church where you could plant them instead of at home. I'm sorry I can't be more encouraging.
