Hi l have some gum trees and apricot trees about ten meters from my house, l was wondering if theres a risk in the future to my foundations as the trees get bigger ? do you think l should get the trees removed. My foundation type is steel beams incased in concrete undergorund , l beleive its called the " pier and beam " foundation , The house is sitting on steel beams around 60 cm off the ground, is this type of foundation have alot less tree risk root then concrete slab type foundations, ? Do l have nothing to worry about in terms or root risk or should l be cautious
