I have some type of birch tree in the front of my house. The roots have grown up on the lawn and crakes my walk way. The tree is beautiful but is destroying my walkway and the lawn. Can I save it or should I just cut it down. If I replant a tree, what tree can I plant that will avoid damaging my lawn and sidewalk like this one did? It looks like they planted the tree not deep enough or they had to as the house apparently was built on an old mountain of rocks.. Do I need to hire a tree expert or something? OR just take it down.. I would love to keep it and cut all the roots that are talking up my walkway but not sure if that would eventually kill the tree anyway.. Any suggestions?
