    I am looking for help in deciding which tree will be the right one for the spot I have here in Zone 4.
    I have a neighbor to the North that has a large two story addition that I'd like to block with a tree or shrub.
    In both photos is a red star. That is my ideal location as it should block the most of the neighbor's garage while keeping the green rectangle open as a trailer pathway.
    What tree would you recommend that I can plant fairly close to the garage, yet can be trimmed where I can walk under it, and is tall enough to block 2 stories? qqq.png

    I don't love the look of arborvitae trees, but that may be the best tree to fit the bill - but it won't look good to trim under it.

    They tolerate a wide variety of soils...but what is your soil like?

    A few others to look into:

    Frans fontaine hornbeam.

    Regal prince oak.

    Vanessa Persian Parrotia probably gets a little too wide, but a great tree.
