Q.tree roots

denisehaley2 added on April 21, 2014 | Answered

I have a silver maple tree that has grown roots in a v shape in the ground where I know have a sandbox. I want to get rid of the sandbox and grow a bird garden in its place. These roots stick up out of the ground a foot high. Can I remove these without harming the tree?

Removing the roots is not advised, but you should be able to work around them by adding soil and plants as you want them. This article will tell you more: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/trees/tgen/exposed-tree-roots.htm
