    Full Transcript: 5 Privacy Tree Favorites

    Hi, my name is Meredith, and I'm surrounded by some of our favorite privacy trees at the moment. All of these, of course, will provide great privacy but also provide some wind barrier or maybe if you need a sound buffer for your property, but there are some differences between them.

    So this one is our Emerald Green Arborvitae. It grows more of a columnar shape. So if you have a space that's very narrow but you need a lot of coverage this is a great option, as you can see, it's quite full.

    But, of course, we have our popular Thuja Green Giant. This one grows into the more pyramid shape and is a very popular choice - fast growing and deer resistant.

    If you don't want the bright green color we also have a fantastic option in the Leyland Cypress. Very similar growth pattern but this one is drought tolerant so it will have the darker color and great for warmer climates.

    And then if you want to mix something up in the landscape this is also our Colorado Blue Spruce has that wonderful blue silvery color to it.

    And then this is our Cryptomeria (Radicans) back here. This one has a different texture if you're looking for something a bit different than the arborvitaes.

    So we have plenty of options on our website FastGrowingTrees.com so if you need some help comparing which one would be best for your property just give us a call and we have plant experts ready to help you.
