Dying Italian Cypress
Italian cypress (Cupressus sempervirens) sounds like the perfect tree for your needs visually. But it likes sandy, fast-draining soil so it might not be the right tree for the heavier Georgia clay you have. Your best bet might be to grow Leyland cypress (Cupressocyparis leylandii), which is more forgiving about soil. It grows bigger than Italian cypress, but you can keep it sheared to the size you prefer.
