Trees for a privacy screen
I live in Alabama and need something evergreen along a 30ft stretch of fence (in full sun) to provide privacy from the neighbors. The trees would be planted between a Little Gem Magnolia (in the corner of the yard) and a Muskogee Crepe Myrtle. I need a tree that grows at least 15-20 feet tall but not too wide because the bed is about 8ft deep. Other trees in the yard include Dogwoods, Yoshino Cherry, Coral Bark Maples, Acoma Crepe Myrtles and one Wax Myrtle. Thanks!
Why not try a Viburnum? There are many species to choose from in your part of the country, and some that grow between 6 and 12 feet tall, like Bodnant or Burkwood. They also flower.
