Correlation between DEM, slope, and aspect

I am building a suitability regression for a tree plantation.  Like many things related to flora, elevation, slope, and aspect are important variables for growth and thus site selection.   However, I am trying to wrap my head around how each of these can be used if 2 (slope and aspect) are derived from the 3rd (DEM).  Is this analytically acceptable?  Is there a way to account for the correlation and the error which must propagate?  

 

Any advice, opinion and insight is welcome.
