The location of a tree must be a sufficient distant from any structure on the property with its branches when it reaches its maximum size should be no less than 5 ft from any structure. The tree should not be planted close to any property lines and must be far enough from neighboring property that its branches and roots the of the is full grown will not reach into neighboring property. This is important because the property owner liable for any damage done by a tree planted on their property. Remember tree roots are at least the size of the tree above ground and for some tree the roots can be much larger. Roots can literally crack a concrete sidewalk, are the most common cause of cracking in concrete block walls, and can even damage a house's foundation.
There also must be enough room for the tree when it is full-grown, and the plants and amount of sun available for neighboring must also be considered. And the location chosen must allow adequate drainage which requires digging a hole and filling it with water to ensure it empties quickly enough. There are a few techniques to correct drainage problems one being the installation of a draining system and costs for installation can vary.
Finally the use or purpose of the tree you wants needs to be determined. If you want the tree to add color to your yard year-a-round and evergreen may be a good choice or a tree to add color in the summer only then a deciduous tree which looses its leave in its dormant season. When the tree primary use is to provide shade a deciduous that is planted on the south side of a residence is a great choice. The tree can provide shade in hot summer months cooling the home and reducing electricity costs for air conditioning. Its leaves will fall and its bare branches will allow the sun through to warm the home in winter lowering heating cost.
