The Q&A Archives: Where to Put Tree in Front Yard?

Question: What kind of book do I ask for to help me plan where to put a tree in the front yard of my newly constructed home? I am concerned about shade from summer sun, the walkway and sidewalk proximity and the root system in relation to a Japanese Tree Lilac I purchased.

Answer: I think you will find this article " Tree Placement on Home Grounds" very helpful. You might also be interested in the publications from the International Society of Arboriculture such as this one on "Tree Selection". Enjoy your landscaping!
