Thujas 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 inches of mulch is a great choice for newly planted Arborvitaes. This will help keep the soil moist during the crucial early period when the roots are acclimating to their new home. Watering in times of drought will encourage faster growth and a healthier plant.
