The Q&A Archives: Screening Evergreens

Question: Please send a list of trees that would grow in full sun in my area that are medium height (25-30') and could be used to help screen/maintain privacy in a back yard. Evergreen would be preferable but we'll take any suggestions you would offer----thank you for your time! Linda Borowski Gaithersburg, MD

Answer: Some good screening evergreen trees of medium height include arborvitae, cedar, yews and some dwarf varieties of spruce and pine. Check a local nursery for the best plants. That way you'll see the foliage and shape and get the right plant for your location.
