Can I remove the tree damaging the sidewalk to prevent future damage?

A City arborist needs to determine if tree removal is necessary.  If a tree can survive a root trimming without uplifting the sidewalk again within 5 years, the tree will be kept. If a tree cannot survive a root trimming, the tree will be removed. If a tree can survive a root trimming, but will uplift sidewalk within the next five years, property owner has options. Refer to If your tree is removed as part of the sidewalk repair… for more information of options.
