    How deep do the roots go? I need to plant several to create a privacy screen but my well is 15-20 feet from where they will be planted. Do you see a problem here?

    Thanks. Jason.

    Arbs are notoriously shallow rooted, 1-2 feet deep at the most. Not sure what the worry on the well is, sucking the well dry or damaging the well casing. Neither will happen.
