    hi
    I have a side yard that is shaded in the morning and full sun in the afternoon. My space is only 45 inches across from fence to Allan block wall. I’m wanting to block the view of my neighbors as they are situated higher than us and look down on our back yard from their kitchen window and deck. I’m wanting it to be 25 feet tall and cigar shaped. Hoping for something that keeps its greenery all year around. Thank you

    Put an arbor over your seating area.

    An arbor can be planted with Honeysuckle, Climbing Hydrangea, or Wisteria. English or Baltic Ivy would be nearly evergreen. There are no trees that would be 25 feet tall and less than 45" in diameter. Any tree grown in that space would require a great deal of special trimming to remain useful from your side and non-aggravating to your neighbor, and alive.
