invasive roots

Geddy asked 13 years ago

I planted a prunus cerasifera nigra about 4 to 5 metres away from the pathway of our house, so ca. 5 to 6 metres from the house itself. my question would be: does prunus cerasifera ‘nigra’ have aggressive roots (which I have read a lot of cherry trees do) or is this tree safe to have in this proximity of the house?

Tree roots practically never cause a problem for a house,a garden wall or paving perhaps but not a house, and this tree at this distance will not.
