Do you live really close to a lake, swamp, or wetlands? That seems to be their choice of habitat. I don't think they care what species of tree. I would choose a large shade tree and face the opening in a direction where both you and the barred owl can see it. No point in facing it in a direction where you can't even enjoy the view of the owl. A pine tree would also be fine. You just want the entrance hole to be visible to the owl so it will notice it and visible to you so you can enjoy it. Don't face it north if you can help it. If the barred owl uses it for a winter roost, the north wind will be unwelcome. An open flyway to the entrance is also important. Both my owl boxes are about 13 feet to 14 feet high. If the entrance hole is shaded, that's also a big plus. Good luck to you.
