From a practical perspective: We have similar issues as I expect others
do to. If the tree is found not to be using the brick planter structure
as part of its anchorage then it could be possible to remove the bricks,
surround the exposed roots and protect temporarily with wet hessian,
plastic sheet, until a new planter with a slightly larger aperture can be
built. If some roots have utilised the solid structure then an
arboriculturalist would need to assess whether they could be severed
perhaps with a light crown reduction (root/shoot). Otherwise fell, grind
out stump, remove/repair and replace with a smaller tree, shrubs or with
whatever would be appropriate.

Thanks Julian / Simon,
Yes, it's OTT, but the client wants to give it a try.
The Engineer said the trees have to come down if the brick planters are
to be repaired. He didn't think there was any other way of doing it (sure
there is).
Hedging / rails would be good, but the trees are growing within raised
beds and so, without the walls of the raised beds, the trees will be
growing on mounds of earth.
Cheers
