Sweet Bay Magnolia For Landscaping
I have a question about the Sweet Bay Magnolia tree, in my landscaping plans I have the Sweet Bay Magnolia tree on the Northwest corner of my house and where it goes there is a drainage tile that would be right under it, I am afford that the roots will get into this tile and cause me allot of trouble. I would like to know what your feeling are on this and if you can tell me if this is the right tree for this area? The tile is around 3 feet in the ground.
Is this Magnolia a fast grower and also can one keep this tree at a height and width that one would like? Does it's roots go deep? If anyone has this tree can you tell me the good, bad and what you love about this Magnolia?
Would there be another tree that could take it's place?
Yes this corner does get shade from a Ash Tree.
