Fast Growing Screen Tree or Shrub - Knowledgebase Question

Our neighbor has cleared his lot up to our property line. What used to be a wall of green lining our driveway is now a view of total devastation/debris. We need a fast growing tree or shrub to plant along 250 Ft. of driveway. A full, evergreen plant woulb be ideal. This area gets full sun and is on a slight incline. Leyland Ceyprus has been suggested, but we don't care for the look of it. Red tips might work well, but we want more alternatives before we decide.

A few other options include Limber Pine, Austrian Pine, Japanese Black Pine, Chinese Holly and Chinese Privet. "Fast-growing" is a relative term; the better you prepare the growing site and care for the trees during their first few years, the faster they should fill the space to provide a screen.
