Answer: Chilean Mesquite (Prosopis chilensis) generally grows 30' high and wide in landscape situations. The general rule of thumb is that tree roots travel out about one and one-half as far as the canopy is wide. So, you can expect that some of the tree's roots will travel 45' from the trunk of the tree. You'd be safe in planting it at least 30' from your house.
