Advice please on which tree to plant?

Beachwood, OH

I need a quick growing, evergreen, good camouflage tree to conceal an ugly utility pole. I don't want a tree which will stop plants from growing underneath it. I live in north east Ohio. Any suggestions will be much appreciated.

could you grow a vine?

How tall do you want the tree to grow? Also if you plant it close to the pole the utility company will keep it trimmed back.
I have a BlueBird and tree swallow box I hung on my pole. You could also hang a squirel nesting box. Just a thought.

Very practical advice. Thank you. The pole is 30' feet high - an ugly monster. Will utility company allow me to plant a vine?
