Thuja Green Giant Arborvitae is the most popular fast growing privacy screen tree in America now but, if you live in the hotter parts of the country, consider Carolina Sapphire & the Blue Ice Cypress. Both are fast growing evergreen trees that love the heat. (Carolina Sapphire is the fastest growing & broad, Blue Ice is narrower and a deeper blue.)

Carolina Sapphire is the fastest growing conifer tree we've seen for making a privacy screen!
Hardy in zones 6 - 9. Dark green, glossy leaves. Can grow to 25' tall or prune to desired height and shape
Shady areas present a problem for folks needing an evergreen privacy screen. Along with water & nutrients, sun is what makes plants grow. Shade means less sun and therefore, less vigor. Even if you find something that will tolerate some shade, it will most likely grow slower and less dense.
That said, the varieties we offer may provide the best chances for success. They all will certainly do well in light shade.
BEFORE DIGGING, call your local utilities to identify the location of any underground utilities.
These plants do not require a very big hole, but if your ground is hard, loosen it up as much as possible so the roots will have easy access to grow.
