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??

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.
