Fraxinus Uhdei planting distance

I live in Mexico and want to plant a shamel ash (fraxinus uhdei) tree in my garden although it is really small, measuring only 12 ft. Wide and 20 ft. Long. Is it safe to plant one or two of these ash trees in the center of the yard. My house is of brick construction atop a concrete foundation. Since I would water these I think there would be no problems with drought and the roots looking for water elsewhere.

hi

based on google pix.... you do not have space for two ...

and i question even one ...

my experience with ash .. NOT YOURS... indicated some serious root competition .... as early as 5 years from a 2 foot seedling ...

i dont know if you will be able to do any gardening under this tree.. in not so many years.. in such a small garden ...

in other words.. you seem to be thinking it wont hurt your house.. but that is not the issue i think will become a problem .. but again.. i am speaking in ash generalities.. not specifically your named tree ...

ken
