I once planted one as a burglar deterrent by the back alley of a Victorian terrace in a dodgy area of town - it grew like billy-o and certainly kept intruders out - I wonder if it's still there - and if the bin men can still get down the back alley 

What tree is this?

That's the one Hosta, I was wracking my poor little brain!  There's quite a few of them planted around here

Hosta!  Stop getting over excited 

Recommend a tree?

8 foot is not necessarily a large tree - an 8ft crab apple does not have the growth potential of an 8 ft ash or cedar.  

However, a crab apple will never screen your upstairs windows. However a crab apple is the largest tree I would consider planting within 20 ft of a house.  You really do need to find out the type of tree the developer intends to plant

You suggest that an evergreen tree would be preferable - remember that an evergreen will be far more susceptible to damage and rocking or worse by strong winter winds - yet another reason why a large evergreen should not be planted near a house.

Tesco are saying that quite a few of the Unilever items whose prices are being raised are actually manufactured in the UK - apparently the Tesco chief used to work for Unilever so he will have a lot of knowledge re their manufacturing ... my guess is that because of this Tesco are leading the bargaining for most of the major supermarkets.

Growth follows the knife - you've just encouraged it 

You'd better use some SBK Brushwood killer in the spring.
