Screening Trees

We all have the dream: a beautiful backyard to call our own, secluded and peaceful. Where we can hear the chirping of birds, the laughter of our children and the play of water. Where the sights and sounds of the world beyond have left us in peace and quiet. Here are a few of the trees that can help you achieve the goal. Add ornamental and shade trees to complete a natural, distinctive look.

Use these for  privacy, wind or sound screening. The possibilities are endless, and they can be used in many combinations. Check out the legend to see other ways you can use these trees in your yard. And remember, shade and ornamental trees can be combined with those on this list to provide added beauty for your screening bed.
