Planting Norway Spruce Near Retaining Wall

Anonymous added on September 7, 2015 | Answered

The neighbors have a beautiful retaining wall that ends at the property line. I want to plant a Norway Spruce near the line to provide some privacy. How far could I plant the spruce without harming their wall with the roots as the tree grows?
