Tree roots require oxygen and water in order for the tree to thrive, but in soils with little porosity, particularly clay soil, little water and air exists below the soil surface. For this reason, tree roots often grow shallow or above ground, with erosion helping to make them even more visible. Landscaping tree roots and trunks is problematic because the tree becomes accustomed to exposure, so simply covering the problem with soil can invite rot and infestation, as well as smother and ultimately kill the tree. Instead, you must landscape around the problem and slowly acclimate the roots to soil coverage.
