Maple tree that won't bother my flower beds
I need help. I have awful Norway maple trees that unfortunately provide great shade. But they're ruining the rest of my life.
I need to replace them and am thinking about a maple native to Maine. BUT I need to find one whose roots will NOT bother my nearby perennial beds! I know certain native maples can have shallow roots or even ones that buckle a sidewalk. I'm sick of completing with the Norway's horrible root system so want to insure their replacements don't cause me the same horror-it's a scary enough proposition taking down two big trees that shade and shape the front of my 160 year old house. Thanks anyone for the help.
