Tree too near house?

A few years ago we planted a cheery blossom tree about 5 foot from house but i have found out these can grow up to 25 feet, so i presume roots will go a lot deeper and spread. So i will uproot and replant but how far should i plant it from house. Or even a septic tank as was maybe going tp plant near the tank BTW tree has not really grown and is 4 foot and has very little buds. We planted two at same time and other one is the same. Any ideas? joebaillie, , Posted: 21/08/2017

Five feet is too close for a cherry, make it more than 5 metres.

Easily moved in November if it is so small, and probably was planted too deep originally.
