Newbie question - hedge / privacy screen for central NY state

Posted by bh13850 zone 5-6 (My Page) on

So I need to find something for a fast growing hedge / privacy screen bush or tree for planting in central NY. In particular, something that could survive in the partial shadow of a big old white pine tree would be wonderful. Soil is somewhat challenging, fairly rocky with shale and some clay in with it.

Any suggestions?

I suggest you give parameters and context. Landscaping is about solving problems within a framework of the surroundings. Showing a picture of the "big old white pine" shadow and surroundings could help. What's being screened?
