Hi I would really like to plant an Acer griseum but the location would be 15ft from rear of house and only 7 ft from neighbours rear outhouse. Is this a problem? If so, any recommendations for good screening shrub or small tree would be appreciated. Thanks

Hi, Nevada,
Small trees should be at least 5m from a house. And some experts would say that is too close. I can see why you'd want an A. griseum, though, they are beautiful and one of my favourite trees. Perhaps for ideas you can do an Advanced Search here on Shoot - select 'Hedge/Screen' for Use and then you can further narrow the search by limiting size, etc. You can even make sure only evergreen plants come up. Happy hunting!
