Privacy Screenig

cilvento(z7/NJ)March 13, 2005

I am trying to find out what to plant for privacy screening. I live in Oceanport, NJ, the ground is wet. I want year round screening from my neighbors, height @ 12'-18' and instantly, if possible. I would like something tall and slender since my property is not too large(100'X100'), to my back fence from the house @ 30'. There will be direct sun. I have a well for watering. There is a 6' fence @ my property. Need help!

The atlantic white cedar is native to your area and the red cedar grows quickly. I know very little about Thuja 'Green Giant' that is on sale and advertised heavily. The others I mentioned can grow in wet soil.

Ilex glabra and Illicium floridanum tolerate wet soil, but are not as tall as what you want. Magnolia virginiana 'Henry Hicks' should work.
