I have a dug well and need to know how close to it I can plant a new tree or shrub.

what tree or shrub? how deep is your dug well & what is the water level? my dug well is 18', the water level is between 12-13' (unless it's droughty a few years in a row... then it's dry in August <g>). i have forsythia right next to the well... it was actually covered by forsythia when i bought the house, but i cut about 3/4s of them down. looked too messy & was over shading some peonies on the other side of the well. don't plant willow anywhere near the well. is your well screened/covered? if not, that needs a LOT more priority than planting anything near it! nothing like a dead squirrel contaminating your drinking water... (you do test your well water every year, right?) lee
