Question by blackmustang

I want to create privacy between my neighbors kitchen window and my bedroom window. I would like it to be evergreen about 10-15 ft high and wide (not small and not huge!)
I live right near the waterfront and I get full sun full wind and full rain in this spot. I want to plant something that can take these elements and still look beautiful. Any Thoughts? Brgds, Kenny

Most evergreen trees reach very large proportions at maturity and probably won't fit in the area you describe. May I suggest a large shrub trained into tree form? You'll have the beauty of multiple trunks along with a dense, green canopy of leaves. If this appeals to you, consider camellia, Cercis (redbud), Chamaecyparis (thread-branch cypress), or Viburnum. Hope the above information is helpful!
