The Q&A Archives: Evergreen Trees

Question: We want to hide a new house being built. What tree can we plant that grows reasonably fast, doesn't have a bad odor that would be irritating or messy to the neighbors? thank you.

Answer: Leyland cypress is a tall evergreen shrub, but when grouped together they make a wonderful privacy screen. Other considerations might be Calocedrus decurrens (incense cedar), Garry elliptica (coast silktassle), Leptospermum (tea tree), Myrica californica (Pacific wax myrtle) or Cupressus (cypress).
