my dad wants some trees for our ny upstate house. We are in little falls which is 29a of th thurway. We get alot of rain so the ground is usually moist. He wants them for privacy, and they is not that expensive and fast growing. What would you guys recommend form the upstate region. thanks LawnInOrder

Problem with fast growing is that means that they are fast dying. Stay away from "miracle trees", buy the biggest trees you can afford, that are hearty enough for your area. In your area I wood see what type of willow oaks or river oaks are available.

If you are going to put in bamboo make sure that you and all your neighbors like bamboo. It is almost impossible to kill and spreads very aggressively. I never recommend bamboo because you can't contain it.

I agree about the Bamboo, it is very invasive.
Cupressocyparis Leylandii is one if it grows in your zone. There are many others.

If Leland Cypress grows well in your area, they will be great. They grow fast and creates a great natural privacy fence.

Its my favorite for privacy.

He lives in NY, a Leyland Cypress would not be a good choice it will not last up here. They are just not built to handle the snow load up here. Eastern white pine is a good choice up here
