Answer: Wastun Carson City, NV A.First of all, you'll need to determine what size tree you would like. Poplars are really the only tree notorious for the damage their water-seeking roots do, so you can choose just about anything else. You might observe what your neighbors are growing, just to get an idea of what will thrive in your area, and what size the mature tree can reach. Oak and ash make wonderful, stately shade trees. Various fruit trees, like apple, crabapple, or quince will give glorious spring flowers and will stay smaller. Russian olive has a distinct, interesting look to it. And of course you can choose evergreen trees for year-round interest and shade, and as wind-breaks.
