Need help with privacy shrubs/trees
We recently moved into a home near a fairly busy street. Unfortunately there are a lot of HOA restrictions. We live in Southern California in zone 9. I need to find a shrub/tree that will provide privacy and some noise reduction. I am willing to plant as many as needed, but it must cover about 40 linear feet. The HOA restrictions are that it cannot grow to a height of more than 23 feet according to the Sunset Western Gardens book. I would really like something as close to 23 feet as possible though. It will grow on the inside of a 6 foot fence. It would be great if it didn't have too expansive of a root system (i.e. ficus).
I apologize for my newbieness. I'm just starting to get into gardening. I really appreciate any help. Thanks.
