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!

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.

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!

Nice trees but worried about some shipment damage

The shipment took a week to arrive since I live at the West coast. One of the the two trees had brown spotting throughout one side. I emailed customer service and attached pictures, asking if the tree would recover. To my disappointment I never got an answer. Other than that, the trees were fuller and larger than I expected. Keeping my fingers crossed that both survive!

Hey, Christine, maybe it went in your junk mail? Sorry for any confusion! We did reply the next morning after receiving your email the afternoon prior: (sent Thu, 10 May at 9:04 AM) Hi Christine, Yes it should recover just fine. We did have some frost damage a few weeks ago but most likely will flush right out. Just follow the directions and it will do just fine. However, if not, we have this as a record and can send out a replacement if not. Thank you for updating us and letting us know ahead of time. Tony

Decent

Delivery was good.Upon receiving all 8 were dry. Some were droopy. They are holding up decently so far after being planted.still droopy on the bottom hoping for the bounce back. I’m not completely unhappy though.They are decent trees so I could possibly buy again in the future.

1-2 ft Thuja Green Giant

I ordered 20 of these trees with the extra warranty, and they arrived within 2 or 3 days in 2 long boxes. Most are about 1 ft high. Every tree looks healthy in their own little pots which were wrapped in a tied plastic bag. Only one had too little soil in the pot. I am always guarded when ordering from online sites that I have never used before, but after reading the reviews I went with The Planting Tree and I am glad I did. I have had a positive experience and I will probably order from them again if I have a need for something I can't find locally.
