Help Identifying These Trees for My Zone 5 Garden?

Good Questions

What kind of trees are these? My wife and I are planning on planting trees for privacy along our back fence. We were leaning towards Bamboo as we've found some cold hardy ones online for zone 5. These trees (pictured) caught our eye off a website, how close can you plant trees together and how tall will they grow? We aren't fans of big bulky evergreen trees and who needs privacy when its freezing out. Thanks for any information you can provide.
