How to smooth this brick walkway

i would like to fix these bricks so they are flat once again. I assume the nearby trees have grown roots that have raised these bricks. Can I just remove the bricks and then cut out all the offending roots? I want to think the trees will not die as a result. I am hoping there are enough other roots to keep them alive. Am I being naive or too simplistic?

Note the root in the second photo. It is between two of the bricks in the center of the photo. I am assuming there are many more throughout this area.

Trees will be fine, not a lot of important roots at the top of the ground!
