I have a silver maple in our backyard that has been in a planter box for 30 years. We tore up the deck and now II have some questions like how big should build a new box/container. I was thinking a round stone wall. We are pouring a stamped concrete patio and I want to make sure I leave enough room for the tree to thrive.

I took a little video now that the box has been take off :
