Answer: Dear Chris,

Liquidambar trees are notorious for blocking drains and lifting paths and pavers.

This tree require a large area in which to grow and is more suited suited to parks rather than the home garden. Zero Glyphosate needs to be sprayed onto the foliage of the plant. The chemical is then translocated down to the root system. Because this is such a large tree and the roots are difficult to control, it would be a good idea to contact an arborist who will advise you on the best method of containing the roots of this tree before it does any more damage to your paved area.
