Tall Screen Tree – Savannah Holly
Q: I could use some quick advice. I’m about to plant some mature trees on my property line to provide a buffer from my neighbors. We need the trees to be about fifteen feet tall so I’ve decided to invest thousands of dollars for some big tree-form Savannah hollies. Now I’m worried sick that I’m not making the right choice.
A: ‘Savannah’ holly is not a bad choice at all. The trees are relatively columnar so they won’t take up too much room at the bottom. Other slender evergreens to consider include Emerald Isle(tm) and ‘Greenspire’ Leyland cypress.
