Planting Fruitless Mulberry trees
I am developing a property in Corfu and it has a pool (constructed). My neighbour has decided to pant a mulberry tree on the boundary which concerns me. I understand this grows to be a big tree and is deciduous which is even more worrying. The root system is big and is capable of affecting my pool construction. How far should it be planted away from the boundary? And will it attract bugs and the like during the summer? Can you advise?

You will want to make sure the tree is planted at least 6 feet from sidewalks and driveways.
