Shade Tree with Non Invasive Roots
We just purchased an old home, severely neglected and overgrown, and removed 3 trees. Two highly root invasive Liquidamber's and one Silk Oak. Both extremely messy and roots too invasive! The Liquidamber roots actually split a huge boulder!!
Any suggestions for a fast growing shade tree about 10 feet from slab with non-spreading roots?
Less mess the better as the tree will shade the house in the afternoon, and a big deck in the morning. The deck is huge and the current Silk Oak drops horrible seeds constantly! We took one out, but left one so we'd have a little shade.
