New here, please forgive me if I've posted in the wrong space.
I currently have two rather large acacia trees providing privacy screening between my property and my four near and dear neighbors (their master bedrooms literally stare right into mine from about 50 ft away). They're doing a fabulous job of screening but they just make such a terrible mess.
I'd love to replace them with something less messy, but I am so completely clueless about plants and all their complications. I have no idea where I'd even begin to start looking for a tree that would fit my needs (good screen/nice and full, grows tall-two stories, evergreen or at least doesn't turn to bare sticks in the winter - thus defeating the whole screening thing, low maintenance and less messy than the acacia.)
Any tips on where to start, advice or suggestions would be *hugely* appreciated. I feel so lost about it all.
Thank so much!
