Answer: There are a few evergreen trees that can be pruned to remain bushy, and provide year 'round privacy. Consider Chamaecyparis lawsoniana (Lawson cypress) Prunus laurocerasus (English laurel) Thuja occidentalis 'Pyramidalis' (pyramidal arborvitae), or Tsuga canadensis (Canada hemlock). If you'd rather have broadleaf evergreens, Buxus (boxwood), Euonymus or Ligustrum (privets) should work well in your gardening region. Male holly shrubs will not produce berries, and make attractive hedges, as well. If you're looking for a shorter hedge (3' or under), boxwood is an excellent choice.
