It's the taste and texture of meat I don't like Dove. There's no religion or animal sympathy involved. Worms might be a bit meaty, leatherjackets too. Small insects might be Ok if nicely served

Tree roots with reference to drains

Wayside, I think it is a fallacy about the root spread. Poplar, willow and wild cherry and ash roots are much wider than the canopy in my experience. Maybe others as well but I haven't tracked those. But these are forest trees, I'd go with something that's never going to be 100foot tall. Hawthorn would be my choice. Yew, holly and box would suit for me because if the ever did get enormous it would be someone else's problem after I'm in the cemetery. (or the crematorium in my case)

I agree with Lyn but more so. You need to repeat the tip removal regularly to achieve bushyness, otherwise it gets tall and  'see-through'. In it's way it's as much of a bully as leylandii. Not quite as tall but wider.

The other down to laurel is that you have to prune it with secateurs rather than a hedgetrimmer or you get brown edges to the half leaves. But you do need to keep it trimmed because it can sulk if you get to the point of cutting into old wood, not always but enoiugh to be a nuisance.
