Massive Root Pulled From Pipe

Occurred on April 24, 2021 / St. Louis, Missouri, USA Info from Licensor: "I was working in my backyard this weekend planting flowers in the rain when I discovered a ton of water flowing up from the ground on the side of my yard. When I started digging I noticed I hit a piece of PVC pipe. As I kept digging I noticed more water coming up and that there was an opening. Then I notice a couple small roots so I cut them out. But, when I reached into the pipe and started pulling I discovered an entire root system in the pipe!!"
