Q.Planting a peach tree – What is the minimum distance from the house?

Zone 7b | vaa345 added on April 21, 2014 | Answered

I’m trying to plant a peach tree. My backyard is probably 10-15 feet. Is it safe to grow a peach tree there, so it doesn’t affect the fence or the foundation? Or should I plant it in my front yard?

Roots of peach trees are not invasive, but they do need room to spread. Probably double the diameter of the foliage spread of the tree when mature will be room enough. The main thing to consider is light - your tree should get full sunlight all day for best fruit production.
