Tall hedge plants needed

Tall hedge plants needed

We are in need of planting a strong hedge or something along one fence of a horse pasture that borders a road. We need something that will be somewhat dense for privacy purposes, tall and evergreen. Fast growing and hardy is a plus :) Because these will have to be planted about 10-15 ft off the road, they cant be really "wide" but we do need somewhat tall. We live in eastern NC and the location where the hedge will be is in full sun on fairly well drained soil. Someone once suggested "red tips" to us and I do like them. Does anyone know if they are evergreen? Also, when should I purchase and plant them?? Obviously the sooner the better, but we are going into fall now. (although eastern NC weather is pretty mild) Any thoughts, suggestions or ideas?? Also any reliable and affordable online sources of these kinds of plants would be really appreciated!!!
