    Default Re: River Birch Roots Taking Over

    The tree is in a raised brick bed. It's the focal point of the patio. The exposed roots are coming up
    underneath the brick. Will simply cutting back the exposed roots kill the tree? How long will it take to die? Years, months?

    Not being my specialty, I'd consult an arborist. If you have an agricultural-type school nearby, they might have some expert advice for free. Then there is always the County Extension Agent listed in the phone book-your taxes have already paid for their services. Perhaps there is a way to coexist with it and that would be worth looking into, but that is best done on-site where the extent of the problem can be fully investigated.
