I have a patio that is paved in red brick. The bricks are mortared together in 4ft x 4ft squares separated by 2x4 framing. The problem is a couple of these squares have lifted up a bit due to roots pushing underneath. The mortar is all intact still. If possible, I would like to lift each of these squares, trim the roots, level the sand and replace the square so it sits at the proper level again.
I was thinking of using a large tripod and come-along winch to lift each square. I could remove the wood framing around each one, or even drill and attach some anchors to the brick surface. I don't know if this is possible without breaking the mortar joints, since 4' x 4' brick is a lot of weight.
