Hi
Not sure exactly what you mean, but it is normal that as trees mature the roots also grow thicker so that those near the surface will begin to push up the ground around the tree. If you have pruned the tree heavily or it has suffered a of damage from wind etc., it will produce a lot of sprouts in reaction.
