The Q&A Archives: what kind of tree

Question: I would like to plant a tree to block my view of my neighbor's backyard, but the tree would be 15 feet from my pool and house. What kind of tree would be the best??

Answer: Unfortunately this is quite close; tree roots usually extend much further outward than the branches spread. For this reason you might want to consider a fence or pergola perhaps with a vined trained on it to soften the look. Or, perhaps your neighbor would have space to plant the tree.
