    Hi-
    We have a young madrona about a foot from the foundation of our garage and driveway that's about six feet tall. I understand we won't be able to move it successfully, but I'm wondering if it's even necessary? Will my beautiful and much beloved tree likely damage my house? I would love to keep the tree, but obviously we have some concerns for our home as well.
    Thanks for any and all information we receive-
    Kelli

    Unlikely to cause problems unless it gets really huge (which it won't do in the average human lifetime!)
