Curly Willow roots entangling with pipes
I have a curly willow tree 18 feet away from my house. It is now about 25 feet tall. Do I have to worry about the roots entangling with my pipes underground? I heard this could eventually happen if the tree is planted too close to the house.

Yes, the willow roots may find their way into your underground pipes. Willows love moisture, and their roots will seek it out. If they find a tiny crack in a pipe, they're likely to sneak in for a sip. Even so, willows are gorgeous in the landscape. Try not to beat yourself up with worrying. I wouldn't recommend removing the tree.
