|What tree would be best to plant in my area to create a tree fence that will grow quickly to aproximately thirty feet?|
|Leyland cypress is used for screening purposes all over the state. The tree has been so overused that many people are sick of looking at it! Nonetheless, if you want a fast, evergreen, opaque screen, Leyland cypress is hard to beat.
Lois Trigg Chaplin?s ?The Southern Gardener?s Book of Lists? (Taylor Trade Publishing) notes several sun-loving evergreen trees to hide ugly views:
?Emily Brunner? holly, ?Nellie Stevens? holly, ?Foster? holly, Eastern red cedar,
?D.D. Blanchard? magnolia, ?Little Gem? dwarf magnolia, Virginia pine and White pine.
I would add to this list 'Green Giant' arborvitae, 'Emerald Green' arborvitae, Japanese cryptomeria, 'Burford' holly and Arizona cypress.
