Much agreed Bill, "What are the options." You can never really know what
to do untill you open up the ground! Well, unless you have the luxury or
ground penetrating radar!

There's a paper in the Arb Journal somewhere about the root architecture
of street-planted Cherries. One of the things they discovered is that
where pavements had been reinstated after roots had been wounded, (a
root that had been planed rather than completely removed) the
wound/callus wood grew more rapidly and distorted the pavement more
quickly in the future. 


Should've been obvious if anybody had bothered to think about it. I
consider it all to be bad practice but then again what are the options?


Bill.
