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.
 
Do the next thing next. That’s a pretty good rule. Read the tiny ad, that’s a pretty good rule, too.
