Old growth pines with mounds at base

last month


We bought our house a couple years ago, and have beautiful, old growth pine and tamarak in our yard. At the base of the oldest and biggest pine tree is a large mound - looks natural from the roots pushing up versus being landscaped. The younger pines are startong to do the same thing. Should I/can I dig away the mounds to level the yard, without harming the trees?
