There are two roots that leave the trunk of this Austrian Black Pine well above the current soil level. They look really odd. Perhaps it had been planted much deeper at one time. So my question is, can I reattach these roots lower down by say drilling a small hole at soil level in the trunk slightly larger than the root, cut the root off where it enters the trunk, insert the root and wire it into place in the new hole. The other option is to just cut the roots off but there is already a lack of surface roots. On the flip side, holes in the trunk where the attempt failed won’t be much fun either! Any ideas?
