What do you do for tree roots when you live on a slab home???

I'm worried, don't want to kill this tree. But not sure it doesn't need to go?

    So exactly what is the issue?

    Depends on the kind of tree it is. Example, Live Oaks roots rise up right out of the ground over time. NOTHING will stop them. So they must never be allowed to grow within 10-15 feet of a house or they will undermine the foundation. You should call an arborist for advice on something this important.

    Maple trees are very destructive to foundations. Acacia, redwoods will clog up your sewer lines. Look up specie of trees to see if its a problem.

    I have tulips in a pot I want to know if I keep the bulbs in the pot and not plant anything else could put a flower pot on top of the dirt
