You wouldn't want to put tubes on a tree that you are growing for a screen, would you? The tube would keep them from spreading out and filling in the space between. Has anybody used tubes on a screen type evergreen?
Nope,probably a fence,they tore mine to pieces.

Thanks for all the replies and suggestions. As usual, there are so many option that I am a bit overwhelmed. I'm still reading what I can find about the various species you guys suggested and others and considering my soil and water conditions.

Football Hunter, I don't think deer will be a problem with these trees in the spot where I will be planting them. There are no woods or other deer cover anywhere near them anymore so I can't see deer rubbing being a problem to their survival. I sure hope not because I'd hate to have to build 200 cages. \:\) At the price of "woven" fence wire, I'd hate even more to pay for 200 cages!

Consider pine trees which can grow about anywhere if they have sun. Some are fast growing and some are slow. I'd suggest the slow ones because the fast growing (loblolly) would get blown over in a wind when they get larger. You are going to need a lot of them and pines are inexpensive and can be ordered through the Tenn. Div. of Forestry for planting next winter. You could plant a row of fast growing loblolly backed up by a row of slower growing Virginia Pine. Last year's seedling catalog can be seen at: http://www.tn.gov/agriculture/publications/forestry/seedlingcatalog.pdf


I'm looking at the price sheet you reference here and have a question about the Loblolly pines. What do they mean by 1.5 Gen, 2.0 Gen and 3.0 Cycle?? The 500 quantity price sure is good.

The 1.5 Gen, 2.0, and 3.0 are improvements generation-to-generation. The 3.0 will grow fastest and maybe have better form and disease resistance. The prices for pine seedlings are good and hard not to consider. They also only take a minute to plant each one. Delivery is free to your county.

You talking about near Winchester? If so, then yes I am. If you know that area, did you ever go to Judge's Gun shop when it was out there?

Thanks, Yes, those prices are darned good. The 500 tree prices are practically free compared to what I've paid for trees before.

Yes, that's the area. I frequented Judge's shop, always enjoyed his company. What I was getting to is I planted a row of about 20 of Leylands at Mom's place back in 2005 for privacy. They've done great, you may want to ride bout there and look at those. I wouldnt rule them out, they're perfect for a natural fence.

The only issue I can see at this point against the Leyland Cyprus might be cost compared to the bulk tree purchases TreeFarmer mentioned a few posts back. Since I have a 400 yard long border that I want covered and probably will plant two rows, the per tree cost effects total cost a lot.

But Thanks, I'll take a ride out that way and look for the trees you planted. Knowing they were planted in 2005 will give me a good idea for expected growth rate. Good info for sure. \:\)
