I want to plant a fagus dawyck purple beside my house on a south facing side. I want to know if the root system will try to break into my foundation or if it is safe.

Hi, Tamara,
Though a narrow, upright cultivar, 'Dawyck Purple' is still a good sized tree when mature so I wouldn't plant anywhere close to a house. Even small trees should be a minimum of 5 meters away from a house (and many experts think that is still too close).
