Evergreen tree extension

Asked July 13, 2019, 10:10 AM EDT

We are looking for an evergreen tree to plant fairly close to the house in a bed in front of house. Would like a narrow, short tree(less than 30 ft when mature). Any suggestions? Exposure is to south and west. We live in Bend. Area circled in red in attached pic is the spot for placement. Last fall we had a hawthorne planted in this spot and it didn't make it .

Hi, The best option for what you are requesting is the upright juniper varieties. They are drought tolerant and deer resistant and come in a variety of spread, height and color. Here is link to the water-wise guide page shows what they look like: pg 18-19
