From:Wynnewood, PA Region: Mid-Atlantic Topic: Trees Title: Evergreen for privacy in Pennsylvania Answered by: Nan Hampton
I would like to plant a tall, thin evergreen in my yard (the taller and thinner the better). Privacy is a goal, so we're looking for dense branches. The area gets full sun, and the soil in this area is rich in clay. A Norway Spruce previously grew in this spot. Thank you.
Here are four possibilities. Although they are all tall naturally, you might prefer a tree that is a bit smaller than these. In that case there are various shorter cultivars of each and with various modified shapes.
