This year has seen many of us in Oklahoma spending more time at home than ever before. As we do, however, a sense of privacy becomes even more important. No one wants to feel like there are prying eyes around them, or that street noise is intruding on their space; a sense of seclusion is also crucial to making your yard a peaceful haven from the noise and the concerns and worries of the world. Fences however can feel artificial or intrusive, interrupting a natural sense of beauty and calm with a look or feel that may be unwelcome. The solution for many homeowners? Privacy trees.
Here are some reasons why privacy trees are becoming more of a trend for homeowners…

There’s no point installing trees that are difficult to grow, or that won’t survive in a broad diversity of soil and sunlight conditions. As a result, privacy trees are attractive for their ease of growth.
2. Privacy trees are evergreen
Dense evergreens with thick branches are the best trees for privacy, and privacy is something that most of us want year-round. As a result it makes no sense to install deciduous trees that drop leaves every winter. Better to choose privacy trees which provide year-round privacy and seclusion!
