Help with Trees for my new neighbor and friend

My new neighbor bought the lovely house 4 doors down from me. She had to remove a large rotting tree from here front yard, leaving her house with little shade and no plantings. She built a retaining wall with blocks dug out of the yard during the process. she’s back filling the wall and has planted two crab apple trees. I convinced her not to plant within 10’ of the house as I have read here. The qeustion now is should she move the one that’s on the top edge of the hill, or would building a half circle retaining wall around it would work.
