Answer: Try White Cedar. I've seen some spectacular hedges...tall and narrow. There are some columnar types that would be suitable. The botanical name is Thuja occidentalis. The common names are Eastern Arborvitae, American Arborvitae, and White Cedar. Another possibility are columnar junipers such as 'Wichita Blue'. These also grow more vertical than horizontal and require little trimming and care.
