How much "stickage" does a red buckeye have in winter when unclothed from leaf?

The reason I ask, is that I am planting a shady bed, and attempting to mix evergreens and not for a shrub border between two houses. My new neighbors want some privacy so I am carefully trying to site the shrubs where they need more privacy or less. They are not gardeners so this one is up to me (smiles, the gardening control freak!!).

My white buckeye doesn't provide much privacy in winter, so I thought I'd ask!

Red buckeyes (Aesculus pavia) are quite architecturally stark in winter, "disrobed" if you will. You'd have to plant something like Aralia spinosa to have less branching and more see-throughability.

Red buckeye would definitely be a "less privacy" plant for winter.
