Stags Horn Sumach vs House Foundations
We're trying to get a definitive answer here on whether or not, if planted close enough to a house, could a stags horn sumach tree damage house foundations via it's roots. I know that if you cut them they multiply like no ones business but we've got a couple of rhus trees here at home and were told to keep them in their pots (albeit large ones) instead of putting them in the ground. We're looking to buy a house now which has 2 of them within about 2m of the side wall so, we'd like to try and get a better understanding if these lovely looking trees will be the bane of our life in years to come,
Thanks in advance for your help!
