Emerald Green Arborvitae Care
Emerald Green Thujas don’t generally need pruned unless you are growing them as a privacy hedge. If you need to prune to control height, shear yearly, and take off as little as possible. Do not wait until your hedge is too tall. Hard topping should be avoided. Remove dead, broken, or diseased branches immediately. Any heavy pruning should be done in early spring.
