maple trees spacing
I planted two maples 20' apart. They will touch each other in 15 years or sooner I was told. But in the meantime, if I'd like to screen the view of neighbor's window etc. between them, possibly under those two trees' canopies, could I plant a JM (such as Bloodgood) in between? That will give me 10' spacing of three trees. But since JM is relatively "understory", maybe I can get by? Hubby thinks there must be an evergreen conifer or two in between, but it may feel too crowed? My goal is to achieve more of a pleasant green scenery from inside rather than a perfect privacy.
