Holly Tree root damage to concreet slab home foundation

Posted by Laura Davich , Apr 18,2004,00:35       Forum

Any information on Holly Tree root damage to concreet slab home foundation.
We have an old holly tree
30+ feet high
14 inch base diameter
LOCATION 24 inches from foundation (built in 1975)
We love the tree... but have concern due to radiant heat system intergrated into the foundation....
What is the damage risk to the foundation?
