Thuja plicata x standishii 'Green Giant'
Save $3.00


The Thuja Green Giant has quickly surpassed the Leyland Cypress to become the most popular, privacy screen in the United States.  

The deep green foliage of the Green Giant cascades down its branches into a feathery point. This fragrant foliage is soft to the touch making it perfect for families with children and pets. This Thuja has lovely, natural flowing branches while still maintaining the classic pyramidal shape you love!

The Green Giant thrives in full to part sun and tolerates a wide variety of soils. You are going to love how easy this tree is to care for due to its pest and disease resistance as well as drought tolerance! There is no need to prune your Thuja. However, if you prefer a maintained look for your Green Giant hedge this hardy evergreen can tolerate even heavy pruning. Pruning the tops will even slow growth and help to control height. Add some of our balanced fertilizer at the time of planting, allow your new trees to establish, and before long you will have a maintenance free tree!

With their increasing popularity, Thuja Green Giants are getting harder to find. Don't miss out! Buy yours today!

How To Care

When planting, stagger your new trees 3-4 feet apart or in a row about 5-10 feet apart. Get creative! Plant in curves or slight s-forms and keep it flowing. Trees do not have to be in a straight line.

Inside those unique curves, add some flair and excitement with colorful plants like Drift Roses, Junipers, Abelias, and Azaleas. Mulch around each planting or landscape bed. Mulch will keep out weeds and provide moisture for your new trees.

Thuja trees 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 your trees as soon as they arrive even before you plant them. This will ensure that the roots are moist and ready for planting.

We suggest a slow release, high quality fertilizer (like you can find right here on our site) to get your plants started. The more you feed them, the faster they will grow.

There is no need to prune your Thuja Green Giants, but you certainly can to maintain a certain size or shape.

Landscape Ideas

Thuja Green Giant Privacy Trees grow fast!  They are perfect for adding privacy to your yard.  Below we have a nice paver path going to the backyard.  On the right we can plant the Green Giant Trees about 8 feet apart.  This way they will fill in fast and give us the privacy we need.  If your going for a more natural look, stagger the trees and it won't look as formal.  Give your trees just as much room off the walkway so that they don't interfere.   Even if you just want a gorgeous focal tree think about how quickly this sturdy Thuja will fill in that empty space in your landscape!

Thuja Green Giant 2-3’

Beautiful trees!!

1-2 Foot Green Giant Thuja

We purchased 25 of the 1-2’ trees. Trees arrived packaged nicely. We received very healthy trees. More so on the 1 foot end of the size spectrum for sure. All are planted and appear to be doing well so far. We’ve had an abundance of rain so we haven’t had to water yet. We are anxious to see how they advance in height. We purchased 3-4 foot trees from a retail competitor for approximately the same price on sale. Hoping they will level out in size over the next couple years. We are attempting to create a noise barrier from the interstate that’s close by our property

Thuja green giant

Ordered 20 of the 1-2 foot green giants, came perfectly healthy and packaged neatly. The pots were wrapped individually in plastic bags with zip ties around plant base to retain moisture/soil. The order was received sent on a Monday from NC and delivered to NJ on Wednesday. Instructions for planting/watering schedule were included in each box, very pleased with my order. They’ve only been in the ground for about a week so looking forward to seeing them grow. I was so pleased with my order that I followed it with another for basjoo banana trees I’m currently waiting for.
