Moved into a new house, the builder planted Four 12 foot tall Live oaks and 3 survived the summer.
They planted a Live oak between the street and the sidewalk where there is 7 feet of lawn.

Will a live oak root system eventually mess up the sidewalk? Has anyone had experience with a live oak close to a sidewalk, street or house?

I am concerned there will be issues in the long run and may want to transplant them to neighbors with dead trees.

Thanks!
Donnie

Forty years from now the roots might shift the sidewalk. It'll add character to the street! :)
