We’ve Talked A Lot About Branches But What About The Roots?

“Dear PoPville,

I have a rowhouse and my neighbor has a large tree with roots that are pushing up my patio, but it’s unclear whether or not they are damaging the foundation of my house. The tree also has branches that cover a large portion of my backyard and part of my house. Has anyone else been in a similar situation and if so, how did you handle it? The damage to the patio is an easy fix, but I’m concerned about the potential of significant damage to the house itself.”

Ed. Note: We’ve recently spoken about branches but I don’t think we’ve ever discussed a root situation like this.
