What is up with these tree roots in my lawn? Well, after you go through the Tree Evaluation Booklet you understand what the tree is trying to do. But it is important to NOT cut those roots out. You can actually kill the tree or make it hazardous.
To fix this we do a compost-sand mix over the roots that the lawn will easily grow through. It is the only safe and effective way to keep the tree and FIX the problem.
