Try installing barrier between patio, tree

Q: I would like to plant a tree next to a brick patio to provide privacy, plus some shade and a windbreak. I am concerned about roots eventually spreading and breaking up my patio. Do you have any recommendation for trees that might be best to plant? The trees will get full sun, and the soil is mostly clay. Thank you.
