    Tree recommendations for privacy

    Holly, Yew, Bay. A hedge would screen more than a tree but neeeds more maintenace Smaller trees often establish faster/better & often catch up with bigger planted trees after a few yrs, so I wouldn't plant a costly very big tree unless you want to spend for instant impact.
