cutting roots of a ginkgo tree

Anonymous added on September 24, 2015 | Answered

I have a huge 60 year old ginkgo tree in my yard. I want to redo the concrete path that runs alongside it and the paver feels we may need to cut some roots. This concerns me. Will the tree be harmed in any way if they cut some non-essential roots? How can you tell which roots are non-essential? The paver guy tells me the tree will be fine, but he is a paver guy not a tree guy. I don't want to make the wrong decision. Thanks.
