    Does the brine discharge during regeneration have the same effect on tree roots as copper sulfate"

    I don't think it does but it can kill trees if it is not diluted enough by groundwater.

    From years and years of experience, the simple answer is no. I assume you are referring to the drain lines. The short burst of salty water will have little affect since it is rinsed away shortly after with fresh water.
