I have a queen palm planted 2 ' from my home (planted 10 years ago). The house has a concrete slab. The gardner says that the queen palm roots won't afect the foundation. Is this right?

I live in canada. and anything planted that close here, almost always manages to start cracking and eventually leaks. I also belive that any wall climbers on the outside of a house are bad news.

Palm trees have many small roots that grow around things. They do not exert the pressure from growth that other trees do when their roots expand in diameter.
You're ok.
