I was wondering how roots of nearby trees might interfere with earth integrated structures such as a Wofati, Walapini, Root cellar, etc.
Would roots tend to stay away from the building, try to push in, or what ?

HI Jason, I'm not sure. But roots can easily lift hardscape such as sidewalks and patios. So they might impact what you mentioned. For a list roots that heavy sidewalks see my first book - Roots Demystified.
 
Listen. That's my theme music. That's how I know I'm a super hero. That, and this tiny ad told me:
Heat your home with the twigs that naturally fall of the trees in your yard
