Privacy trees (arborvitae) suggestions?
I have about 60 feet of our backyard where I would like to plant trees to serve as a privacy shield. There are electrical wires that run there so max height would be about 15 feet and I don't want to lose more than 4 feet of yard (fence to lawn).
The area gets good sun at least 6 hours from front of trees and another 3-4 hours behind above fence line.
I started to research the various arborvitaes but quickly became overwhelmed.
Any thoughts on the best ones for this situation?
Suggestions on height to start and how to choose a tree - read something on getting a Single leader'?
Can the trees be cut across the top at some point to limit further growth?
Do they need to be wrapped in Winter?
