Best 6 Trees For Privacy To Grow In Illinois

Illinois’ state soil is the Drummer series, which was established in 1929, a series of fortified soils. There is a Drummer Creek in Drummer Township in the Prairie State, which led to the name Drummer Creek.

Because of the terrain of the township, there are many deep soils which do not drain. If you have this type of soil in your garden, then you will need to make sure that you have enough organic matter and fertilizer to ensure that your trees grow to their full potential.

The state of Illinois is sometimes referred to as a microcosm for the entire state, and indeed it does seem to contain everything!

 A state with a variety of cultures, climates, and a great deal of agriculture, Illinois seems to have it all…including a great deal of variety when it comes to cities and small towns.

As a gardener living in Illinois, I’m certain that you realize the vast expanse that lies between the state’s northern and southern borders can produce a wide range of gardening challenges.

It doesn’t matter where you live in the great state of Illinois, Nature Hills Nursery is always ready to help you, just as it has done so for countless Illinois gardeners over the past 13 years.

We have a wide selection of living fences that will give you extra privacy for your home without the need to look at a drab wall or fence.

The Thuja Green Giant is the most popular evergreen tree in the United States, and it grows at an incredible rate of up to five feet per year. Willow Hybrids and American Holly are other good alternatives in the hardiness category.


Canadian Hemlock


It is possible to have a stunning evergreen growth that is not restricted to hot or cold climates with the Canadian Hemlock.

The cold hardy trees will thrive in regions of the country where other types of trees aren’t able to grow, and also thrive in regions that experience higher temperatures.

What could be better than that? As long as the soil conditions are poor they can grow, but they have adapted to the shade, actually preferring a shady spot when the temperatures rise in summer.

As a result, Canadian Hemlocks are among the most evergreen plants that can survive in almost any environment.

It’s also worth pointing out that Canadian Hemlock is very versatile. The plants, when planted in close proximity, will produce a dense hedge that will provide plenty of privacy when planted in close proximity.

As they grow together, they form a strong wall that protects you from noise and high winds. In spite of its wispy foliage, the wisps are surprisingly strong and can withstand high gusts of wind with no problems at all.

You get a well-established, substantial tree that adds value to your property and enhances the curb appeal of your home no matter where you plant it.

Douglas Fir Tree

In your own yard, it is possible to grow the most popular variety of Douglas fir.

Douglas Fir Trees are one of the most popular sources of lumber in North America, and they stand up to the test of time – they are hardy, sturdy and easy to grow.

We are going to be able to plant trees that will live for hundreds of years to come.

When you plant a Douglas Fir, you are contributing to a key piece of the ecosystem, one that will last for many generations to come.

There is also the fact that the Fir can survive temperatures as low as -20°C, and the leaves of this tree are soft and flexible, allowing it to adapt to various climates.


Moonglow Juniper


As enchanting as its name suggests, Moonglow Juniper is one of the best-selling trees in the U.S.

Thanks to its enchanting color, hardiness, and adaptability, Moonglow Juniper is an incredibly versatile tree that will light up any space in your yard.

A metallic silvery glow can be appreciated from its dazzling blue, shiny foliage, which reflects the glow of moonlight in a stunning display.

Moonglow is completely adaptable and has a dense growth habit, easy to train branches, providing an excellent protective barrier because of its dense growth habit.

Could you make it even better? There are no needles shed by it, and it does not produce any litter at all, since deer tend to stay away from it. Each season, your Moonglow Juniper will continue to look the same: Gorgeous Rocky Mountain pyramidal shape, perfectly cool, silvery needles on dense upward-forming branches, as well as healthy growth.

Juniper ‘Wichita Blue’ Tree

The thick, full foliage of the moderately sized Wichita Blue Juniper creates an impenetrable screen or windbreak, but still is short enough not to interfere with power lines.

The rows of Junipers will add vertical interest along fences, roadsides and beyond, as well as acting as windbreaks and screens.

This is not limited to the outside of your house: you can cut a few branches for Christmas greenery to add beautiful blue-green color and fresh Juniper scent to your Christmas decorations as well.

The Juniper tree stands out year round in your garden because it is evergreen, long-lived and deer resistant.

There is a gleam of silvery blue foliage, but without any of the typical bronzing that results from winter.

The Wichita Blue tree, which typically lives 70 years or more, is a valuable addition to any landscape.

Deer are not attracted to it, however many birds will forage on the silvery blue berries in late summer and winter, which makes for a beautiful display of wildlife.

Soft Serve® False Cypress

There is nothing quite like a soft, lovely look all year round. Try Soft Serve® False Cypress (Chamaecyparis pisifera ‘Dow Whiting’ PP#20883).

It is a fantastic plant to use in your landscaped beds or containers. When the leaves of the plant are fully exposed to the sun, the tops of the leaves appear shiny and silvery blue.

With the introduction of this improved selection of False Cypress, its beauty and grace are enhanced in a compact format.

The dense, conical shape of this Proven Winner® plant, on the other hand, makes it ideal for use as a specimen, or a hedge with little maintenance.

As you can see, it has the typical soft, fern-like branches of the False Cypress with a foliage that is a rich, dark green and has a silver underside that gives it the characteristic shimmer in the breeze.

Its pyramidal shape and the fact that it comes in both large and small sizes make it a perfect choice to fit into many landscape applications, whether formal or informal.

The dwarf Alberta Spruce is a pyramid shaped tree just like the Alberta Spruce. There is no denying the fact that Soft Serve has a softer, more informal appearance with a more airy texture.

Slow-growing, this tree reaches a height of 10 feet and, once established, takes on the shape it needs without requiring you to do any additional work.


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.

These features lend the tree a distinctive character in the landscape. Serpentine Spruce gives your garden a very prominent and modern look as it has a noteworthy good look.

It is a charismatic and dynamic look in general. Generally, strong, upright branches are surrounded by pendulous secondary branches that seem to drip from the strong, upright branches.

This plant is highly ornamental because of its bicolored short needles. Despite having a dark, glossy green appearance on the top, the underside of the secondary branches will exhibit a surprising silvery Colour as the breeze catches them. There is no doubt that this display is very beautiful!

Due to its narrow pyramidal habit, the Serbian Spruce tree is better suited to smaller scale landscape situations than most other conifer trees because of its narrow habit.

In spite of its purple cones, it displays a cinnamon color when it ages – a reddish-brown lustrous color.

During the winter season, they add delightful winter interest and are a classic way to identify this elegant plant.
