around a small pond. Trees would used as a privacy screen. Zone 8. Thanks
An evergreen tree would be the best..It's not good to put trees that loose their leaves around close to a pond if it can be avoided.Have you thought of maybe Chinese Photinia shrub?
cryptomeria,or Nellie R Stephens Holly
not necessarily a good tree for around ponds or water, but one that is overlooked quite a bit: austree. Check out austree.com
Not an evergreen but how bout pond cypress, bald cypress, pampus grass, savannah holly.
Consider the long term a friend of mine has trees on his levee and the roots made the levee leak, so the pond dries almost all the way up in the summer
leyland cypress or cryptomeria, both evergreen and grow pretty fast
Not evergreen but how about Betula nigra - River Birch or Magnolia virginiana - Sweetbay Magnolia. These will do well in wet sites.
A great tree is Betula nigra Summer Cascade. It is a weeping River Birch and only gets to about 20 feet. It has the beautiful peeling bark, plus it will screen the area 7 months out of the year.
