No, don't take the tree out and here's why. This tree is a low slow growing tree and grows away from the house and the roots will not be a problem for many many years. What I would do just to make you feel better is to dig down between the tree and house about a foot below the foundation level and about 4 to 5 feet length wise and add a liner such as polyprolene to block the roots from growing into foundation. Many cities now require liner boxes to be placed around the rootball of trees planted on sidewalks to keep the roots from uplifting the cement walk ways. You can also try pouring cement into what you dug out and cover with dirt to hide. If this was a fast growing tall tree I would take it out, but this tree, no. I've been a professional gardener for 18 years and seen many trees planted too close to home and have uplifted the foundation. It's the biggest and most common mistake a home owner makes, planting trees in the wrong place and not moving them soon enough. The bigger the tree becomes, the more it will cost to remove.
