I want to plant a almond and apricot off to the side of the main water line that goes from my well to my house. Will this pose a problem? They would be planted five feet off to the side. Any thoughts or advice?

Almonds are so common here that I can ask around...

I do not see what problem you think about, as I suppose roots will go on the sides.
Well, can you tell what sort of pipe they are? Plastic (PE)?

I'm honestly not sure what kind of pipes they are, I am assuming plastic. The well was put in before we moved onto the property. If I had to guess, I would guess they are around 3 feet deep, but I could be wrong.

Almond trees can grow between stones and they can be a problem only for masonry I think.
Here I can see some growing very near stone walls, and no problem though.
