Any tree with a girdling root will decline. Starts at the top, just like any other root problem. Only remedy is to remove the offending root.

A tree of virtually any size in a landscape can have a girdling root, if that is what you are asking... I personally have removed them on trees as small as a 3' Jap maple, all the way up to a 18" tree.
