Cinnamomum camphora (Camphor) is fast growing to 35-40'; Fraxinus americana
'Autumn Purple' (Autumn Purple Ash), and Zelkova serrata 'Green Vase' (Green Vase
Zelkova) are other suggestions. Planting on a slope shouldn't be too difficult. You'll want to dig a shelf in the side of the hill so water can pool at the base of the tree and percolate down to the root system. Enjoy your new tree.
