Tree Placement

Where to plant a treeTrans

Under or near power lines — plant small trees (25 feet maximum at maturity) to avoid potentially hazardous situations

Near building foundations — plant at least 10 feet away from walls trees that are small (25 feet maximum at maturity) or medium (25 to 40 feet at maturity) – and at least 15 feet from walls threes that are large (40 feet or more at maturity)

Near sidewalks or driveways, patios or pools, other hardscapes or fences — plant trees at least 5 feet away to avoid property damage from roots and provide adequate growing space

Near underground structures (sewer, gas, cable television, or sprinkler lines) — plant trees at least 5 feet away
