Concrete Slabs & Root Heaving
I love shade trees. Our condos currently have large Bradford Pears shared between neighbors. When these have to be replaced, the rules require it to now be more of a dogwood, redbud type to prevent root heaving of the concret slabs.
It is my hope to make a case for a larger shade tree. After searching on the internet, I still don't know which trees have roots that will go vertical and not impact the building. Someone said that Pin Oaks are good (I'd love an oak)but I have not verified that is true.
Can you give me some direction? Thanks...
