Magnolia vs Concrete

Posted 942 days ago

How far away should a Magnolia tree be from concrete pathway? Magnolia is about 6m in height, trunk at ground level in roughly 25cm in diameter. I have no idea what the radius of the root system is or how deep they go. If I was going to install a section of concrete for the kids to ride bikes on I don't know if the roots would be capable of breaking it up when it grows some more.
