Finally got to the root of the problem......    from experience, you can add dirt but only a couple inches per year and still run the risk of killing/damaging the tree.  During a tornado had a huge pine tree crush the wife's car, my new pickup got one tiny crease in the rear corner of bed.:)  Car roof was on the front seats.  Pretty impressive.  I cut the tree on both sides of car and was towed with trunk still embedded.

that should only be  1/4" of soil, maybe couple inches of loose mulch...  don't plant trees with the crown below ground level.. it will never be happy..  what sbho said..
