tree roots-can I remove them

I have several 25 year old trees that the roots have decided to rise above the ground. I do not want to remove the trees but am afraid I will have to as they are now lifting the sidewalk.
Can I cut these roots and not harm the trees? Or will that kill them? With the roots so high above the ground it seems that they really are not doing the tree much good.
Please help I have to do something!

Get in touch with experienced tree guys to determine if cutting these roots will affect the trees.

Sometimes trees die from root cutting, other times they don't.
