    I have 2 large Bald Cypress trees with shallow roots which are above ground level by a few inches. I want to add a few loads of topsoil to level the area and re-plant fescue sod. I am doing this to make mowing easier around the trees. Question, will this damage the trees?

    I thought Cypress Knees were a characteristic of that tree and necessary for the tree. I may be wrong lol.
