    How To Care

    Thuja trees thrive in full to part sun and tolerate a wide variety of soils. Once established, Thuja Green Giant trees are drought tolerant. However, they need to be watered heavily at the time of planting. Be sure not to let your new trees dry out within the first few months before they are established. Water your new potted arborvitae trees as soon as they arrive even before you plant them. This will ensure that the roots are moist and ready for planting.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. Thuja Green Giant Arborvitae trees love to eat! It’s one of the reasons they grow so fast! Fertilize with slow release fertilizer every spring. You can fertilize again in late summer if your soil is nutrient weak or your trees need a boost! Newly planted trees should be mulched with pine bark or pine straw. Mulch will keep out weeds and provide moisture for your new trees. Add 1 to 2 inches of mulch in a mound around your tree, taking care not to allow the mulch to touch the trunk of your tree. This will discourage pests and disease.

    Add some of our balanced plant fertilizer at the time of planting, allow your new trees to establish, and before long you will have maintenance free trees and wonderful lush, green privacy!!

    When planting a thuja privacy hedge, plant your trees in a row about 5-8 feet apart or stagger your new Thuja Green Giants in 2 rows for faster privacy. Get creative! Plant in curves or slight s-forms and keep it flowing. Privacy hedges do not have to be in a straight line. In fact they don’t have to have the same tree! Try mixing up Thuja Green Giants with Carolina Sapphire Cypress for some nice color contrast or Nellie Stevens Hollies for great texture contrast! Planning your privacy screen with more than one privacy tree type can actually reduce pests and disease and help your trees stay healthier even as they grow old.

    Add some flair and excitement with colorful complimentary plants like Drift RosesJunipersAbelias, and Azaleas. Mulch around each planting or landscape bed to reduce hand watering needs.

    Landscape Ideas

    Thuja Green Giant Privacy Screen

    Thuja Green Giant trees can be spaced 5 to 8 feet to create a nice fast growing privacy screen. If you can be patient, giving these privacy trees a bit more space will save you money and allow the trees to grow larger. If you need faster privacy plant them closer, but never closer than 5 feet. An alternative option if you need instant privacy is the staggered landscape plan.

    Staggered Landscape Plan for the Fastest Privacy

    For instant privacy, pick out larger thuja trees and stagger your them by planting 2 rows. For the Thuja Green Giant plan for about 6 to 10 feet between trees on the diagonal. This will leave you with about 6 to 10 feet of space between each tree within the rows and the rows will be approximately 4 to 6 feet apart. When you have 2 rows and the trees are staggered this allows the trees to have more room to grow and be healthier and you get instant privacy without overcrowding your Green Giant Arborvitaes.

    Landscape Specimen

    Green Giant Arborvitaes also make great specimen or focal trees. They have vibrant color, a nice shape, and soft, attractive foliage. If you have a large yard try a group of 3 Thuja Green Giants in a triangle in the corner of your yard for a great look. These fast growing evergreen trees also look great lining a driveway.
