You must choose your trees wisely. Branches that touch a building are easy gateways for ants and rodents to gain access to the roof and walls of a home. When planting trees and shrubs near buildings, consider the mature branch spread of the plant. Don’t plant a tree that will grow to a 30-foot span at maturity within 10 to 15 feet of the building, otherwise branches will need to be continually pruned to keep them off the structure.
