I'm wanting to plant a shade tree in the middle of my backyard. I have an adjacent swimming pool so am concerned about roots being invasive. Can you suggest some please?

Many pines have a taproot system, meaning that it won't shoot as many lateral roots that may want to grow through your swimming pool. When you think about planting something, just make sure it doesn't drop leaves everywhere. That might be rough cleaning out of the pool.
