Maple tree roots growing under foundation

I have 3 maple trees that are trying to grow too close to my house and one has put a crack in my sidewalk. How do I get rid of them without tearing up sidewalk. I'm not apposed to killing them but I would need to know how.

  • Have a professional arborist remove them and grind the roots down.

  • Have professionals take them down and with them down the roots will no longer grow and invade your foundation.

  • You should call in a pro and cut down the trees. Also call an inspector to make sure they haven't already done damage to your foundation.
