What should be considered when planting trees by paved area or walkway

Distances required between trees and paved areas

You should avoid planting trees in areas with less than 3 feet between paved areas. In areas with 3 to 4 feet between paved areas, plant trees that will grow to a mature height of less than 30 feet. In areas with 5 to 6 feet between paved areas, select trees that mature about 50 feet tall. Reserve trees that mature higher than 50 feet for areas with at least 8 feet between paved areas. This allows adequate space for the tree roots.
