RE- Connecting 4” ABS to 4” steel, near tree roots.
Tree roots have distorted a rubber hub and have grown into my sewer line.
I have found and dug open the problem joint. Now I want to Replace the hub and wrap the joint with something to keep the roots away.
I am Not willing to Internally re-line the pipes, replace the metal sewer main, Or kill the trees.
How can I re-do this connection and prevent the tree roots from re-entering the sewer?

Forget All About All Those Copper Pennys And Wire Stuff And Wrapping With Mil. Tape
All You Have To Do Is Install New Band Coupling And Take Some Rock Salt Pour Over And All Around Joint No Roots Will Grow Though Salt ! ! ! !
