No, it does not.  WikiTree exists on its internet servers - in cyberspace.  Your only system resources (meaning your own computing equipment) involved it that which is required to view whatever window(s) of information you are presently looking at.

Keith is right. Just to mention the obvious corollary: Adding individuals does consume space on WikiTree's servers' hard drives. This is one of the many reasons it's so important to collaborate on the same ancestor profiles instead of creating extra copies. It's also why we can only afford to have members who take our mission and Honor Code seriously. We only recently started allowing member registrations again (rather than being invite-only) and we're already seeing more abuse.
