Consider Leyland cypress? This is a popular tree for screening and privacy plantings. You might also consider 'Witchita Blue' or 'Skyrocket' junipers. These are reasonably fast growing, upright plants. Or, American arborvitae (Thuja occidentalis) is a tall, columnar evergreen that's a natural for planting in rows for quick screening. Hope one of these suggestions works for you in your landscape! Good luck!
