:waving: Hey fellas, I got a call from a lady who want to create a privacy "fence" with trees for 150 linear feet. I need some ideas and suggestions of trees that
1. aren't too wide
2. grow rapidly
3. aren't too expensive
thanks in advance

Green Giant Arbs
or Ligustrum. Ligustrum are generally cheaper.
If it does not have to be year 'round, Heritage Clump Birch gives a good high screen very quickly for short money.
If evergreen, I like Isobel's Green Giant suggestion.
If you don't need high screning and need to stay very narrow, Emerald Arbs fit that bill.

oooo! I forgot about the Heritage clump Birch. That's another good one.

Do you guys have the Techny Arb?
Its the only evergreen considered for hedges.
If deer are present , then perhaps the White Spruce.
It is hands down the best (fastest) growing around here, but never hear it mentioned elsewhere.
