Can removing trees cause water problem?

Can removing trees close to the house cause water to come through the foundation wall where water never came in before?

It is possible.

The canopy will reduce the amount of water reaching the ground, so removing the tree will put more moisture there. Also, if you didn't regrade properly, you are letting water run to the foundation.
