  • I would go with any of the dwarfs. A Blue Spruce while beautiful will get huge! My parents planted some along the fence when we were kids. I could jump over them. Now, they are about 40' tall.

  • The Scotch Pine Tree grows to about 6 ft. There are a bunch of Dwarf Pine Trees that only grown to 3-4 feet. There is also a Bristlecone Pine Tree that is a slow grower and only gets to about 15 ft.

  • No on the blue spruce, we planted 2 of them about 5 yrs ago and they're huuuuuge! Although that poor little cedar is taking forever! I'll be dead before that thing grows to 6ft. lol Also stay away from Douglas firs, they grow fast as well.
