Should I be concerned about potential foundation damage or damage to the sewer system from medium size holly trees close to a home's foundation?
A holly on your foundation can create great year round color and privacy. It's also capable of growing towards your home and need to be pruned away to mitigate any possible damage. The root system however should not be of any concern unless you see visible cracks. Hollies will typically grow around your foundation as opposed to something like a Weeping Willow that will penetrate it.
