Answer: I would not cut the roots - they are helping the tree find moisture and nutrients and cutting them will stop the flow and potentially cause them to decline. Have you considered raising the walkway above the roots? I think I would build a wooden pathway, much like one going over a stream. Even if you only have the bridge in part of your walkway, it will lend interest and still save the tree roots from damage. Just a thought!
