Help for fast growing privacy shrubs
A new neighbor from CT just moved in to a mature 20 yr old NC neighborhood and on day one cut ALL of the privacy trees down and wood chipped them between properties without checking the personality of the neighborhood. All have same barriers as privacy. Needless to say, we can see 4 houses that we could never see in the 13 yrs that we have lived here. We need to get some "fast growing" shrubs (fairly tall 20ft) hopefully that won't need too much attention (we are 73 and not getting any younger) but also will give us our privacy back before we go to the big garden in the sky. PS Apparently, she is planning to leave all of the 2 ft high, 80ft long pile of wood chips and stumps on property as she had them piled in a long burm (sp). Did I mention that there were 12 large trees? Please help.
