  • The trees should not be planted in front of the entrance of house.
  • Big trees can be planted in the South and West portion of the house.  They should not be too close to the building as they block sunlight and roots of the tree can damage foundation. The roots of big trees absorb sunlight and do not allow them to reach the house. 
  • Small trees can be planted in the East and North side. But no tree should be planted in North-east corner.
