Privacy Trees

6 Best Trees For Privacy To Grow In New York

It is warming up and the days are getting longer, which means that we can once again enjoy the outdoors as the weather warms up.

We’re getting back outside for the season, and now it’s time to do some landscaping and plan for the new season. The part we like best about landscaping are the plants and the flowers. There is nothing more beautiful than a private tree.

Often, fences are too short for privacy and they are costly to manage and repair- after all, upkeep and repairs add up.

In addition, fences don’t have the luxury of a lush, natural appearance or offer the benefits of eco-friendly vibes, eye-catching foliage, and many other advantages.

Trees that block noise, clean the air, and last year after year are what we call Privacy Trees. Take a look at our favorites below…and begin growing your own!

Castle Spire® Blue Holly

You will undoubtedly want to protect your castle if that’s what you consider it to be.

It would be nice to see a living fortification fit for a king included in the design. In the case of our Castle Spire® Holly (Ilex x meserveae ‘Hachfee’), you get that and so much more!

An impressive evergreen bush, Castle Spire® has that clean, iconic leaf shape that makes it stand out from the crowd.

A very beautiful, glossy, evergreen plant that has highly ornamental foliage that is scalloped and pointed!

A new version was developed that had improved branching and even a more lustrous, classic Holly leaf.

Throughout the year, it is charming, but really shines in the winter when it is covered in snow.

In addition to being tall and elegant, the dark, shiny green foliage on this tree looks handsome all year round.

The addition of tiny white blooms in spring, followed by the addition of red berries later in the season really make this plant stand out with its four-season interest.

This tall narrow Holly stands resolutely amid the white snow, its blue-green, glossy, dark leaves shimmering in the sunshine.

As spring approaches, it is covered with white snowflake blooms, and as autumn approaches, it is adorned with clusters of bright red berries!

In a Christmas card you can almost imagine a red Cardinal or a Blue Jay sitting among the branches with a red bow on their head. I think this is a spectacular display to be sure!


Columnar Blue Spruce


It just so happens that you fell in love with the idea of having a Spruce tree in your landscape, and why wouldn’t you?

Spruce trees are some of the most beautiful evergreens in the world, due to their steely-blue colored needles and their beautiful, fresh flowers.

However, Colorado Spruce requires a lot of commitment on your part. They can grow as large as 80 feet in diameter and up to 25 feet tall.

There is a difference between this variety and others. Although it grows tall enough to create an impact on any scene, it stays narrow enough to fit just about anywhere.

The Columnar Blue Spruce (Picea pungens var. glauca ‘Fastigiata’) is a selection of a native tree that was chosen because of its narrow, upright appearance. Choosing this tree means that you will not have to sacrifice any of the color or excitement that you are looking for.

Each spring, the beautiful needles emerge from a powdery blue coating that makes their appearance so beautiful. I like the fact that the fastigiate branching is held tightly upright close to the main trunk of the tree, which gives the tree a crisp, alert appearance.


Serbian Spruce Tree


The Serbian Spruce tree (Picea omorika) is a magnificent evergreen specimen tree that is hard to find more beautiful than any other evergreen species of tree.

Due to its pyramidal shape and graceful branching, the tree is a great feature for any landscape.

The Serbian Spruce does not grow tall, but it does have a slender, straight trunk that stays quite narrow all through its lifetime.

As a result, it is a very attractive tree in the landscape. The good looks of Serbian Spruce help elevate the tone of the garden design with its remarkable beauty.

The overall look of the website is charismatic and dynamic. On the underside of the strongly upright main branches, there are many pendulous secondary branches that are sloping off the main branches.

North Pole® Arborvitae

Adding a beautiful, hardworking tree to your garden that will add an element of elegance all year round is the North Pole® Arborvitae (Thuja occidentalis ‘Art Boe’ PP22,174).

Hardy and evergreen, this White Cedar is an outstanding Proven Winners® selection made by the renowned Art Boe of Faribault, Minnesota.

As a result, it features a narrow and upright shape that never needs to be pruned.

Trees like this produce soft, lush green leaves throughout the year, making them the perfect year-round screen.

In order to create a green privacy wall, North Pole can even be used on smaller residential landscapes. And, best of all, it is narrow enough so that it won’t take up a large portion of your yard.

There will be no widening of the North Pole Arborvitae in the future. As it is easy to grow, is resistant to winter burn, and can work in either full sun or partial shade, it is a great plant to have in the garden.

You won’t have to worry about breakage caused by ice or snow accumulations when you plant this tree, so you won’t even have to worry about the harsh winter weather taking its toll on your North Pole. The dark green color remains the same throughout the year.

There are many gardeners who would love a plant like the North Pole Arborvitae due to its narrow, columnar growing habit, and the lower maintenance it requires. Place your order now!


Ivory Silk Lilac Tree


Is it your goal to stand out from your neighbors by doing something unique and that will make you stand out from the crowd?

This is not the first time you’ve heard Lilac shrubs called Lilac shrubs; however, this is a new twist on them.

Lilacs such as the Ivory Silk Lilac Tree (Syringa reticulata ‘Ivory Silk’) grow much taller and wider than other kinds of Lilacs.

The plant still has its fragrant blooms, but this one is in the Supersize version.

The Ivory Silk Lilac Tree is an ideal option if you love Lilacs, but want to make a bigger impact with it.

Despite its name, this is not the flowering shrub. This is a small tree that bears large, foot-long panicles of flowers in late June.

Adding this small tree to your Lilac collection will extend the season of blooming for a long time after the other Lilacs have finished.

Fresh, sweet fragrance fills the air in early summer when delicate white flower bunches perfume your entire garden. What an enjoyable experience!

After the blooms pass, you will still be able to enjoy the refreshing shade from the large leaves long after the blooms have passed.

Upon first glance, you’ll be able to tell that this is a very special type of Lilac. Throughout the summer, Ivory Silk Lilac Trees will be densely covered in beautiful, dark green leaves, which makes a refreshing sight in the midst of the summer heat.


Colorado Spruce


The majestic Colorado Spruce tree (Picea pungens) grows to a size of over 100 feet in height in the Rocky Mountains, turning into a visible presence in the landscape.

A tremendous evergreen with strong lines and a pyramidal form, this evergreen gives a formal polish to your garden design by adding structure and formality.

There are many cultivars of this native tree with powdery blue needles. You may have seen some of these name cultivars in the past.

The blue-toned, cloned and grafted Colorado Blue Spruce trees are often known as Colorado Spruce trees because of their blue-tones.

In order to provide our clients with the best quality trees, we carefully select a premium strain of the native trees. From deep, steely green to shades of blue-green and silver-blue, the color range is something you cannot resist.

As Colorado Spruce is grown completely by their own roots, we are able to produce plants that are incredibly hardy, strong, and long-lived.

There is a tall, native forest evergreen here that you can use if you have an eye sore on the second or even third story window of your home. A massive windbreak can be built along the edge of a property so as to protect it from the elements.
