Each of these varieties are time tested, and have proven themselves to be excellent choices for privacy screen, border, or windbreak use. For those customers who have particular size specifications or restrictions which limit the mature size of their screen or windbreak, we have conveniently divided this category into two sub-categories :

1) Larger, full sized selections

2) Slender, narrow, columnar selections.
