I am 
looking for suggestions on a tree/bush that doesn't get higher then 6
feet 
and doesn't have a massive root system.  I was thinking of an Acer but
am 
not really familiar with them.... 



at 6' in the acer genus (palmatum), here are some choices: 

any dissectum (over 6' after 10 years??) green or red 
sharp's pygmy 
beni hime 
kiyo hime 
koto hime 
wilson's pink dwarf 
shishigashira 
all are small and slow growing. 
there are more, but these came "off the top" of my head
