    Probably a cypress or maple would be your best bet.

    If you are looking for privacy on a balcony, I would recommend using a vine and trellis instead of a tree. It will provide the screen that you are looking for quickly and would not take up the space that a tree would need. Some good evergreen, privacy vines would be:

    Persian Ivy
    English Ivy
    Boston Ivy
    Creeping Fig
    Gelsemium sempervirens

    If you are still set on a tree, Arborvitae is a common and good choice for evergreen privacy trees in pots. The pot needs to be at least 2 inches larger than the rootball, though I would go larger than this if you do not want to repot anytime soon.
