Evergreens that grow in shade/heavy shade??

Posted by sutallee 7 B/ georgia (My Page) on

I live on the back of a 5 wooded achers in Canton Ga.
There is a subdivision being built behind me. Is there a tree out there that I can plant so I cant see my neighbors and vise versa in the winter time when all the other leaves have fallen?

Thanks in advance,
Phil Albright

Don't know about Ga. Here I have some native hollies that are growing in very deep shade that are doing well.

Hemlock. You can get 7 gallon and larger at Buck Jones Nursery off Hwy 140 as you head south towards Roswell.

White pine is pretty tolerant of shade. Not total shade tho. If they get a half-day of good sun, they'll do well.

How about a mix of magnolia grandiflora, ilex opaca or 'Savannah Holly' which is an evergreen hybrid of i. opaca and i. cassine, eastern red cedar, and whatever pines do well in your area?
