your favorite tree?

I'm looking into planting trees along my driveway. I'd highly appreciate any help you could give me. Thanks!

LOL. That's an open ended question. Any idea how long the driveway is and the space that is available? Is this a half mile long country driveway or a residential lot? Assuming your in Mississippi could be anything from crape Myrtles to Live Oaks. More info needed.

It's a residential lot. It's probably 40 yards long and 5 yards width to property line. I like the Natchez crape myrtles but I seen where they grow to 16 feet tall and think that would be to big for the area. Thanks!

They will get much bigger than that and too messy to have near a driveway. Here is a great selection. BTW I've never seen this tree get much more than 25' tall or 10' wide. http://www.monrovia.com/plant-catalog/plants/694/pyramidal-european-hornbeam/

Do you have to prune these trees? Looking for something that looks good and provides some privacy. Thanks!

Great when used as a hedge. They never need trimming.
