We have a cedar tree next to our house, approximately 8 feet away from the wall. Will the root system be a problem? We live in Foley, AL.

Less than 10 feet from a house may be a little too close, but cedars are usually less damaging than deciduous trees would be. It does depend on the mature size of the particular cedar variety you have, but most types of cedars shouldn't cause damage in this situation.
