I'm a beginner at landscaping and need some help. I have an area that's about 5' X 5' in the corner of a fenced backyard (6' tall fence). I live in a townhome, so I'd like to plant a tree that will grow to about 15-25' to block out some of the view of the homes behind me. For that reason, I'd prefer something that's fast-growing and an evergreen/conifer, so that the view is blocked year-round. I would also prefer something that is tolerant of pruning, as I'll have to make sure it doesn't grow into a nearby path and I may want to prune off lower branches in order to plant flowers around the bottom of the tree. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Thanks so much for suggestion. Your response reminded me that I forgot to mention that I'm in Maryland (zone 7). Thanks again!
