It does indeed, my guess is it would be best to just replace the downpipe completely, and probably the T joint at the top.

That downpipe is about 10 inches in diameter too :D

I'm betting it involved a number with three zeros at the end boar c

 

I'd guess at a new downpipe

Here is a better pic so to get a better idea how big that downpipe is as its massive but still got blocked. It would not supprise me at all that the whole pipe is blocked including below ground too.

id bet those roots would be tougher than the roof and gutter materials, probably start snapping and peeling away as you remove the pipe and veg

I think someone in the past has already tried to remove the tree from the downspout as it's had a slight trim. So going by the thinkness of the branches cut would have been at least 6 foot tall. That means maybe the roots would be at least 12 foot or more growing down that pipe :D

Like I say, I would just remove the whole downpipe and throw it away and replace it, no point trying to remove it from the pipe.

You couldn't throw that away! Case it in formaldehyde and put it in the smurf museum of gutter curios

I've just requested a quote to scaffold the back of the building to see how much it would cost to do the job safely as is the only way I can see anyone wanting to sort it out for them.

 

How much do you recon the quote would be?
