Not a rose enthusiast really but a site with as much sunlight as possible I think. The apple tree site appears to be the best site.
i have recently planted a rose and sunlight was a major consideration.
the only worry about tree roots would be if you could not dig in the area to plant the rose.
Dig in plenty of compost at planting time, add a mycchorizal fungus product and some organic fertiliser. Make sure your rose doesn't dry out this summer,,of course
