Planting Trees

Anonymous added on March 17, 2011 | Answered

I want to plant some trees at the bottom of my garden but the neighbor can be quite arrogant. Is there any set distance from his property to where I would like to plant the trees, and which trees would be suitable? I would like to plant some sort of firs without too much root and not too much higher than my 6-foot fence.

Most areas have laws that state overhang onto a neighbor's property can be cut back by the neighbor, so you may want to plant far enough away to prevent overhang. These articles have some nice suggestions for privacy type trees, which is what it sounds like you are looking for:
