How To Find Appropriate Mature Trees To Plant For Privacy

Question From: Cupertino, California, United States
Q: Hi Nancy, We want to plant 2-3 mature trees as privacy trees in our backyard. We need privacy from a 2 storey apt that overlooks our yard, so the trees should be at about 10 feet tall. What trees do you recommend? We live in the bay area of Northern California. Where can I purchase such trees, and have them planted in my yard?

A: Vinay, I can't answer this question as I live in Michigan and am not familiar with the trees that grow and do well in your area. I suggest you visit a tree nursery or an independent garden garden centers that sells trees. They often have landscape designers on staff that will advise you. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy.
