rice paddy Tree suggestions?

Hi, I need to plant some fairly big trees - 5-7m which will survive in the wet soil of a rice paddy and give all year round screening in Chiang Rai, Thailand.
I can dig an irrigation channel to try to keep some of the water away but I'm pretty sure the soil will still be very moist.
Any suggestions please?
Thanks,
Emily

You might research Taxodium distichum or Taxodium ascendens. I do not have any experience with eithor of them but I think that they would do well in your circumstances. Good luck.
