Q.Are The Roots Of Prunus Amanogawa Likely To Cause Problems To Paths Or Walls?

Zone Tf12 5hb | Anonymous added on October 10, 2021 | Answered

I want to plant a prunus amanogawa in our town square to celebrate the community spirit shown by people in the town during the pandemic. Someone has suggested that the roots can cause problems to paths and walls.A local horticulturalist has said that they will cause no more problems than the lime trees that border the square. What do you think?

I didn't find any reference that said they had aggressive roots but they do sound like they are high maintenance as well as short lived.
