Which Tree should I choose??

12 years ago

I live in southeastern PA and am trying to figure out what tree to plant along the fence line of the neighbor. We want a decidious tree that is fairly full so that it will block the neighbors on their deck when we are on ours. Was initially thinking an October Glory Red Maple, but realized over time that tree would just be too big for the space. I am looking for a tree that gets to about 20 ft tall and 15 to 20 ft wide. The trees my local nursery has are:

Newport Plum

Prairie Fire Crabapple

Flowering Dogwood

After some research I am leaning towards the Crabapple. Would this tree fit the bill?

Or does anyone have any other suggestions?
