Noteworthy Characteristics

Green Giant Arborvitae is a fast growing evergreen conifer perfect for creating a tall screen or buffer. Once the root system becomes established in the first growing season rapid growth will be the result in subsequent seasons. In some cases you can expect 24 inches of growth in a single season and, in some cases, even more. At maturity this narrow, pyramidal growing conifer will reach 40 to 50 feet tall and 10 to 15 feet wide.

Uses

Most often utilized as a screening tree, to block unwanted views, dampen sound, and as a windbreak, Green Giant can also be useful as a stand alone specimen or on the corners of tall buildings or other structures

Culture & Care

Green Giant Arborvitae prefers a well draining slightly acidic soil and plenty of sunshine but will tolerate a little shade. It requires no pruning and is quite drought tolerant when established. Fertilize in spring and again in late summer with a well-balanced shrub and tree type fertilizer. Avoid planting underneath powerlines.  It is very deer resistant.
