    its probably a silver maple and the roots do just that. you could cut the root, and you could dump soil over them but a change of attitude would be better. Instead of slowly killing the tree by removing feeders or smothering them, plant some Hosta and Ajuga and put an inch of mulch down. or build a bench around the trunk...
