I live in Tallahassee, FL, and about 200 feet behind our back fence is a major highway. The back fence receives partial sun (maybe 6-8 hours max in the summer) because of all the tall pine trees behind our fence. We are trying to find some tall (6-ft minimum), thick-growing, sound-blocking evergreens that would thrive in our zone and plant along our back fence. Hopefully to also make the fact that we live next to a highway less audibly noticeable. Are there any plants you all might recommend?
