    I would dearly love to plant a Russian olive but have read of horrendous root problems. How close to street, driveway or house can you plant? Are there any other grey leaved trees that give light shade? Or other similar sized trees that give dappled shade?
    This is my first post. The information available on this site is so helpful.

    I would recommend a Eucalyptus as well.
