Spacing

I am looking at creating a privacy screen at the back of my yard using Swedish Aspen and want to put a row cedars as well. I am wondering how close I can plant the cedar trees to the Aspen and wondering if I need to worry about the root systems at all.

RE: Spacing

We don't know what kind of cedars, how these trees would relate to one another, or to other things in the yard. As you've described I imagine one row of one species and an adjacent row of a different species. This seems like an undesirable way to create a privacy screen or to "landscape." Why the 2 species in rows like that? What else are you trying to accomplish with such an arrangement other than privacy?
