My pond is beneath mature trees in my garden. It's quite 'open' - there is about 10ft between pond and trees, and it gets early morning sun. The shade is great, i dont get algae or blanket weed as a result, and in the autumn i put a net over to catch the bulk of the falling leaves..... So.. Dont be put off by trees.. .. and the area around beneath the tres is perfect for frogs to hide..
