Ive seen trees like this in person.. its weird how the root mat acts... It does this mostly around driveways and sidewalks like this because they roots get bound by the concrete..

Hard to tell from the pic but looks like crushed stone or concrete under the tree. Looks photoshopped since there is no loose soil on the sidewalk or underneath.

Ground under it is too hard and all the water was up high. Typical city tree.

thats pretty cool.

I see that alot with the hardwood trees. maples are the worst and some oaks for only having about 12" of roots.


Better pull it over and sod staple it back to the ground
