Definition of surface roots

Categorized under "General"

Definition as written by Terry:

Many large trees have roots that are at or near the soil surface. Species prone to surface roots include silver maple, poplar and willow.

These roots can make walking and mowing dangerous. The roots can be covered with mulch, but care should be taken to not cover them with too thick a layer.
