When tree matures will shade roses

I really would not recommend it. Rosebushes do not like to compete with trees for water and nutrition. If the garden was large and there was a good 6 feet from the rosebushes, then may be okay. But for small gardens I recommend finding a nice spot near the rose bed yet 6 to 8 feet of clearance.
