Fast-Growing Privacy Trees
Looking for privacy trees to block out your neighbor? Our privacy trees are the perfect solution! Instead of building that ugly privacy fence out of wood or plastic, plant a living fence of trees.
Privacy trees can also add value to your home. When it comes time to sell your home, the future buyers will love that they can enjoy their new backyard without the entire neighborhood looking in.
Some Great Ideas for Privacy Trees
We believe that we have some of the best privacy trees available to purchase online. Here are a few of the specific privacy trees available through The Planting Tree:
Thuja Green Giant Arborvitae - They get big fast! The Green Giant is the most popular selling evergreen today. This fast-growing privacy tree can grow up to 3 feet per year and it is very forgiving.
Leyland Cypress Trees - They also get big fast! Our Leyland Cypress is also a great choice for privacy. It has darker foliage than the Green Giant and is stiffer in form. Plant a group of these and watch them grow. In 2-3 years, they will provide the privacy that you are looking for.
Emerald Arborvitae - Can be great for a narrow area. Emerald Arborvitae can be planted in tighter areas to form a fence. These evergreen privacy trees are much slower growing compared to the Thuja and Leyland Cypress Trees.
Blue Point Juniper - Are you looking for a blue-green colorful privacy hedge? If so, the Blue Point Juniper will work great! Its colorful foliage pulls the colors of reds, pinks, and yellows out from the landscape.
Nellie Stevens Holly - If you're looking for a darker green evergreen tree, Holly Trees work very well. They are compact and will fill out in an area if you just let them grow. Plant your Holly Trees 6-12 feet apart. They will fill in and block off an area for privacy.
Wax Myrtle Trees - These privacy trees are great for making a hedge. If you are looking for a large and tall hedge, wax myrtles are the answer. They are very fast growers that will give you privacy within 2 years. Plant your wax myrtles about 3-6 feet apart near your property line. Year after year, keep the sides tidy and lightly prune the tops and you will have a nice privacy hedge.
Sky Pencil Holly - Need to screen an area for your garbage containers or an area that is a tight squeeze? The Sky Pencil Holly is the perfect fit. You will need to plant about 1-2 feet apart to build a screen. As far as maintenance, just trim the tops at your desired height.
