Best Trees For A 2 Foot Wide Curb Strip

Filed Under: Trees · Keywords: Tree, Trees, Sidewalk, Plant, Up, Fruit, Plum, Plum Tree, Hi, Other · 284 Views
What trees can be planted in a 2 foot wide curb strip without the roots lifting the sidewalk or spreading underground and sending up shoots in the yard? I have two non-fruiting plum trees that have lifted the sidewalk which is now a safety hazard. They send out roots that sprout up to 15 feet away from the tree. These trees have been grafted onto a green leafed trunk.

An arborist told me a blood red maple or a parrotia persica/Vanessa could be good choices. Any other trees?
