Q.Trees in Containers
I live in a mobile home park in Albuquerque, NM. The intense late afternoon sun is difficult and I had hoped to plant a tree to help absorb the intensity on the house (faces WSW). BUT the space is limited and the roots of a tree might be disruptive to the street or the driveway next to me. So I am considering a container tree. Question: I would like to know what kind of tree to consider — I would like the largest possible tree — that could survive being contained. How large/deep would the container need to be? If you need more info to be of help, let me know. Thanks for being there to help with this question.
