The Q&A Archives: Creating A Tree Barrier

Question: We purchased a home with a large backyard and would like to create a privacy barrier so we do not have to see our neighbors back yard. Which trees grow at least 25'and are quick growers which require a minimum trimming/pruning? Any trees which produce flowers?

Answer: There are many plants that you could consider. You might look at some of the newer disease resistant crabapple varieties as well as the ornamental pears. These require minimal care once they are established and grow relatively quickly. They are also predictable as to mature height and width.
