plant Bamboo. People sue the Fast Food Industry for making us fat. Why hasn’t someone sued the Bamboo Industry for making us poor at the hand of removal. Seriously folks, do not plant this unless you install a 3-4′ barrier. There are better alternatives. For example, the Arborvitae Green Giant is a marvelous tree. Once established it will grow 3′ a year. Unlike Leyland Cypress it sends down deep roots, and it will not fall over if you blow on it. The Green Giant is a narrow tree with a mature width of only 8′. In other words, it won’t steal your yard from you as it matures.
