Answer: Shade trees should usually be planted 20' away from buildings and foundations. If you have that much room, consider planting poplar, quaking aspen, thinleaf alder, Rocky Mountain birch, or peach leaf willow. If you don't have that much planting room you might consider planting narrow, upright arborvitaes. Some will grow 50' in height. Good luck with your landscape.
