I have a monkey puzzle tree which is very large and tall can the root system damage the house it is 3 metres from the house base, can I have the roots pruned ,if so who do I ask for ? when I want the roots pruned ...



You can't have the roots pruned, no, it will kill the tree. In theory, unless you have heavy clay soil, monkey puzzle will not damage your house foundations, but may cause heave of any paving, or any nearby sewer or drainage pipes. If you decide to pay someone to take the tree out, bear in mind they may make an extra charge because monkey puzzle is such a difficult tree to deal with in terms of its spikiness.
