Need ideas for a front yard tree without surface roots
Hi everyone. I was thinking about planting a red sunset maple or a smaller sugar maple in the front yard but then read that they might have surface roots. Does anyone have ideas for a front yard tree that would not have big problems with surface roots? I guess a few surface roots here and there would be OK but I don't want to be tripping over them and have trouble moving around them. I live in the middle of IL. This would be the only tree in my front yard, I can at most a 35' diameter tree since I have a pie shaped lot. My house faces west. Thanks for any ideas you have!
