Osage Orange Question

Does osage orange (Maclura pomifera) when grown as a hedge have roots that would/could invade water pipes? There's an osage orange hedge right next to our well (about 10 feet away) and I'm wondering if I need to be concerned.

Re: Osage Orange Question

Well, thanks everyone for looking. I didn't know either. I'm hoping since no one jumped in with a resounding "OMG You're in big trouble!!!" that I'm probably okay.
