The most commonly planted evergreens in your area are Douglas-fir, Grand fir, White fir, Eastern red cedar, Western red cedar, Northern white cedar, Ponderosa pine, Scots pine, Austrian pine, Western white pine, Rocky Mountain juniper, Alberta spruce, Norway spruce, Colorado blue spruce, and Englemann spruce. The firs and cedars may grow too tall for your landscape, but the pines and spruces should maintain a decent size. You can learn more about these trees by looking through the Sunset Western Garden Book (available at most libraries as well as most garden centers). Best wishes with your landscape!
