Tree recommendation in Colorado

Asked February 19, 2018, 6:56 PM EST

I'd like a plant to put in my backyard that will provide shade and privacy. Therefore, it should have somewhat thick foliage, and ideally, would keep some of foliage throughout the winter (shade/privacy). Max height more than 25' and spread maybe around 20-40'. I'm thinking a spruce? Any suggestions?

Blue spruce, Ponderosa pine, Austrian pine, Rocky Mountain Juniper, are probably your best options along the Front Range.
