Privacy Trees | Living Fence Trees | Tree Hedges

Privacy trees are our living fence trees that are the quickest and easiest way to create a living privacy hedge. When planning your living hedge, look for trees or shrubs that will grow into a dense form with tight branching for privacy. Many of our living fence trees selections are fast growing tree varieties that will create a fast growing privacy hedge.

Our quickest growing trees are Carolina Sapphire Cypress, Willow Hybrid, Poplar Hybrid, Green Ash, Quick Shade Imperial Carolina and the Quick Shade Red Baron Willow, as well as the Spring Grove Arborvitae and the Thuja Green Giant.













Fast growing trees are often used as privacy hedges. The Thuja Green Giant is one of our most popular trees growing in zones 5 through 9. Now available in a new size!

Living Fences and Windbreaks: Just as trees are critical for providing shade during hot spring and fall days, protection is also needed during the cold winter months. During winter months, wind chill can decrease the temperature by more than double, depending on wind speed. A Living Fence or windbreak will reduce wind speed for a distance of as much as 10 times the living fence or windbreak’s height! Windbreaks help to reduce drifting snow and soil erosion on exposed sites.

Windbreaks and living fences planted on the north and west sides of a building have been known to reduce heating costs by up to 30 percent!

Hedges, Privacy Screens, Living Fences, and Windbreaks in your Landscaping:

  • Use several rows (one to five) of defense to create your windbreak. Make it at least 15 feet wide.
  • Plant your rows in a line perpendicular to the prevailing wind and upwind from the space or building you want to protect. Check with your local weather station to find out the direction of prevailing winds in your area.
  • Design your windbreak as three parts: the windward, centre and leeward. The windward row is what the wind hits first and should be made up of dense, fast growing trees and shrubs that prevent snow from piling up in the centre. This also helps to prevent moisture accumulation in the spring in areas where snow is trapped and is not melted by the sun. The middle row should be made up of tall, fast-growing trees and shrubs that force winds to rise up over the windbreak. Finally, the leeward row should be made up of dense-growing trees and shrubs.
  • Use both evergreen and deciduous species to provide a variety of food and shelter for wildlife.
