North Dakota gardener interested in trading plant stock

Email

Q: I am looking for a fast-growing tree to plant in a row this spring that can act as a wind/privacy screen. My soil seems to be all clay below 2 to 3 inches of topsoil. I have found hybrid poplar, austere hybrid and willow hybrid while searching the Web. Would one be better than the others when considering soil and weather conditions or is there another tree that you would recommend? Should fast-growing trees be avoided?
