Suitable tree

What is a suitable tree that won’t destroy newly installed field drains? We are installing a garden above ground railway on posts and have had drains put in to stop the water retention problem but what small trees would be suitable to make an attractive area in the centre? We are thinking 1 or 3 in a group. Thanks lynne
