Shallow tree roots and new grass

For the past few years the roots from the Sugar Maple in our front yard have been getting in the way of germination of new seed after aerating/over-seeding each Fall.

Fescue-JD Lesco transition blend
18-24-12 Starter Fertilizer
I've put out over 2 yards of soil, core aerated and over-seed (heavily in the rooted areas under the tree)

Its been 15 or so days and i'm getting great germination all over the yard except in these problem areas under the tree canopy... What else can I do here?

If you have any suggestions please feel free to share.
