    Some trees seem to have some root showing once they start getting bigger. I know my absolutely huge maple has some areas of root above the soil level.

    You may have to have a few loads of dirt brought in (to cover the tree roots and fill low spaces) then start the leveling process.

    if your trying to level out a area, take a long straight board and put it on the ground where both ends are on high spots. Use some good loose soil to put in front of your board on the low spots high enough that pushing your board across the area can level out the dirt across the area you want leveled
