Does this tree have invasive roots which disturb things nearby?

all tree roots go wherever they find water, nutrients and oxygen, certain plants will do well under trees once they have adapted to the condition, bulbs like hardy cyclamen , galanthus, erythroniums etc. will do well in competition with the root system, also hellebores, skimmia, sarcoccoca. If you water on the surface the tree roots will tend to stay up high, whereas the spring bulbs can go dormant and plants like hellebores and sarccocca do well with very little water once established.

Thank you. I was really wondering if someone who has planted this tree can tell me if its roots push up nearby paths/lawns/shrubs. I want to plant one but I have read that liquidambars are notorious for disturbing things with large surface roots. Not sure if the Slender Sihouette does the same.
