Privacy fence trees – Trees make excellent privacy fence, as they often grow taller than even the nosiest neighbor can stretch your neck to look over. Planting distance is key when using trees to form a hedge. You want to give enough space between the trees for them to grow. For evergreen trees such as juniper and pine trees, you should place them between 6 to 8 feet apart. Pines and spruces, but need more space and should be planted 10 to 12 feet apart. With deciduous trees depends planting distance of the species.
Deciduous privacy fence trees are not commonly used for privacy screens because when they lose their leaves, not giving as much privacy. It does not mean you can not use them. Amur maple (pay) is a dense, compact tree that grows up to 20 feet high. It requires little pruning and can withstand wind, dry soil and drought in USDA zones 3 to 8.
Hedge maple (Acer campestre) has dense branches that often reach the ground. It grows up to 35 feet high in USDA zones 4 to 8. Other deciduous trees that can be used for privacy fence trees include willow oak (Quercus Phellos), shingle oak (Quercus imbricaria), American beech (Fagus gradifolia), European beech (Fagus sylvatica ) and Laurel willow (Salix pentandra).
