I have a red maple tree planted in my front side yard between my house and my neighbor's house (but it is on my property)...she has an oak in her easement, a magnolia tree in the center of her front yard and a very large palm in her flower bed...recently she has been complaining that my maple tree is getting too big (it is just two years old and approximately 6 feet tall) and that it will throw to much shade on her plants...today she complained that the root system will mess with her springler system and the sidewalk...so just how invasive are the red maple's roots???  Our lots are not very wide, there is approximately 10 feet between each home, that is why I planted the tree in the front side yard so that it would have some room to grow.  So again how bad or good is the root system of the red maple??? If I should transplant it, just how much room should be given away from the house, foundation, driveway, and sidewalk???

I appreciate any information you could give..
