If you plant your dogwood or cherry too close to the fence the canopy will hang over into your neighbor's yard which might cause problems. The best advise is to plant trees according to the size of their canopies, making sure they will fit in the space. Your maple tree is in a good spot, I think. Enjoy your garden.
