I would like to plant some fast growing trees for back yard privacy. How does Norway Spruce handle high clay soil and survive spring planting?

The Norway Spruce is an excellent choice except that it isn't fast growing. I still prefer it to
the white pine which is much faster growing and less expensive. White pines do not tolerate clay and high ph soils. For a long lasting beautiful screen I think the Norway spruce is best.
