Space needed for large canopy tree


I am considering planting a Big Leaf Maple or Oregon White Oak tree in my yard, but am not sure if I have enough space. What is the minimum distance I should plant each of these trees from the house, sidewalk, driveway and power lines?

I recommend that you ask this in the Trees Forum; lots of experts on just this question there.
