Description

The Emerald Green Thuja is the most popular, medium size privacy screen tree. If you are looking for an evergreen hedge without the extreme height of the Thuja Green Giant or the Leyland Cypress this gorgeous arborvitae is the perfect choice.

The Emerald Green Arborvitae is beautifully shaped with stunning, lush, green foliage that is beyond compare. Emerald Greens add value and beauty to any home, building, or property. Many customers utilize this tree as a low maintenance living fence, but because of its unique flowing and twisting branched foliage the Emerald Green is prized as a single specimen as well. This isn't your average, boring Christmas tree evergreen. The shape is more cylindrical than pyramidal. The dense, feathery foliage swirls and twirls around this plant creating a lovely. natural layered, but clean look that is unparalleled.

The Emerald Green Thuja is one of the easiest trees to grow. They are for the most part maintenance free...yes maintenance FREE so you can spend your time enjoying your trees rather than fussing over them. Look forward to disease and pest resistance in this hardy evergreen. Once established these trees are even drought tolerant and extremely cold hardy!

Plant your arborvitae in full sun for best color and growth. This evergreen is adaptable to various soil types and environmental conditions. Fertilize when planting and once yearly in spring with a balanced, slow release fertilizer like the one we carry. Our fertilizer is safe to use at the time of planting. Avoid harsh chemical fertilizers that can burn the roots of your new tree. There is no need to prune your arborvitae.

The Emerald Green Arborvitae is our favorite evergreen for a manageable privacy screen and for single specimen planting. The lush and unique look of this striking evergreen really makes it stand out in the crowd. This tree grows in zones 3 to 8 so it thrives in most of the United States. Order yours today!

How To Care

The Emerald Green Thuja is one of the easiest trees to grow. They are for the most part maintenance free...yes maintenance free so you can spend your time enjoying your trees rather than fussing over them. Look forward to disease and pest resistance in this hardy evergreen. Once established these trees are even drought tolerant!

Emerald Arborvitae trees do need to be watered heavily at time of planting. Be sure not to let your new trees dry out within the first few months before they are established. Water deeply about 2 times per week rather than smaller amounts several times per week. This ensures that the roots grow properly. We recommend watering your trees as soon as they arrive even before you plant them. This will ensure that the roots are moist and ready for planting. Adding 2-3 inches of mulch is a great choice for newly planted Emerald Green Arborvitaes. This will help keep the soil moist during the crucial early period when the roots are acclimating to their new home.

Some "bronzing" is typical during very cold winters but is merely cosmetic and will fade away in spring.

For a privacy hedge, space your new trees about 3-4 feet apart on center for faster privacy. To showcase individual Emerald thujas plant at least 6 feet apart.

Landscape Ideas

If you are seeking a nice specimen tree with some height (but not too much) for the front of your home, plant an Emerald Arborvitae on each side of a window . This creates a softening affect that breaks up the wall and adds character to your home. Under the windows you can plant your choice of shrubs. For tons of blooms, bold color, and rich texture plant knockout roses in the back and drift roses in the front. If you prefer evergreens, try a mix of Gold Mop Cypresses and junipers; this will offer year-round foliage, as well as rich texture and striking color contrast. Emerald Greens are great anchors for the corners of your home as well. Plant just one or groups of three for even more impact. The mature size is 14 feet tall and 4 to 5 feet wide so this tree is great for any size yard. For instant impact start with larger trees. We offer a variety of sizes to suit any budget or landscape plan.

For a privacy hedge, space your new trees about 3 to 4 feet apart on center. To showcase individual Emerald thujas plant at least 6 feet apart.

Loved my plants!

I have gotten two emerald arborvitae and a blueberry from this Online Nursery. All plants were beautifully packaged and healthy. They look happy in my garden! I would order from Planting Tree again!

Nice Quality Tree

The order was received in a timely manner and it was nice to be able to track the progress of my order. The tree was packed really well and appeared to be healthy. It has been in the ground for a few days and seems to be doing just fine.
