I have geothermal installed too, but I didn't plant any trees near where the pipes are laid.
I'd say you would be better to plant large shrubs over the piping area, as they would not have as an invasive root system as trees. do.

Could you grow something that does well in containers, and just bury the container?
I know figs do better when planted like that- maybe someone else has other suggestions?

I have similar set up with ground source pipe in garden..........when it was installed we left trees in place and sited pipe around the clear areas, trying to lay pipe as far possible from the trees. that was 5 years ago and the trees seem fine.........and heat pump is fine. I am now starting work on the garden and will probably plant shrubs as mentioned above.........and hedging. I want to plant some small/medium type trees also and I need to find out what may be suitable.
