14 years ago, I planted a poplar near my house (7.5 meters from it) in
eastern France.

The poplar is now more than 15 meters high, and I wonder if the roots are
going to breach the concrete floor or the walls of the house.
The diameter of the trunk is now 35 cm.
The diameter of the tree is about 8 meters (It' s a kind of rather wide

Is there any danger actually ?

Thanks for your thoughts
