Best Trees for Standing Water Year Round in CT?
Much of our land in Connecticut (Zone 6, hot in the summer, freezing in the winter) now has standing water year round. (Long story, involving a neighbor who broke drainage pipes that can't be fixed, another who installed a pond raising the water table, etc). A number of the existing trees are dying (I assume from the flooding).
Since the drainage problem can't really be fixed at this point I'm looking for suggestions of trees that can take standing water in Connecticut (ie hot in summer, freezing in winter). I'd prefer coniferous trees that would provide privacy all year. Ideally I'd prefer fast growing trees. And if they don't cost a huge amount, that would be great too (though I understand that's probably a stretch!).
Also wondering if there are any trees that will not just live in standing water but will help solve the problem. Not sure if such a type of tree exists (that helps suck up all the standing water? bamboo maybe?) but I figured if it does exist, this is the place to find out about it.
Thanks! Any suggestions are welcome and appreciated.
