Re: Trees between houses - Tight Spaces!
I would opt for cyprus, these trees only get about 3' in diameter but make up for it in height. Root balls are also about 3' in diameter or less. They are fairly fast growing and create a great screen if you want to block your view of the neighbors house. The last property that I owned had them and they were great. They got as tall as our 2-story house and provided a nice barrier between our yard and the neighbor.
I suffer from CDO ... Its like OCD, but in alphabetical order, LIKE IT SHOULD BE!!!
