Thoughts on 'Hybrid Willows' vs. 'Thuja Green Giant'?

18 years ago

The back of our yard is in need of some privacy screen, as it faces other yards. The main portion of the yard is flat, but it slopes down towards the boudary lines. The houses behind us actually are on another street and are below us. From the other street, you can see up into our yard.

We are looking to plant something that is fast growing and offers privacy.

I was all set on the Thuja Green Giant but have just seen the Hybrid Willows. The willows appear to grow faster and taller, the Thujas retain their conical shape (so pretty!).

Does anyone have any experience with either of these? Thanks!
