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.

I think you will find this article " Tree Placement on Home Grounds" http://muextension.missouri.ed... very helpful. You might also be interested in the publications from the International Society of Arboriculture such as this one on http://www.ag.uiuc.edu/~isa/co... "Tree Selection". Enjoy your landscaping!
