Product description

Green Giant Arborvitae, scientifically known as Thuja standishii x plicata 'Green Giant,' is a robust and fast-growing evergreen tree that's popular for its dense, lush foliage and towering height. This arborvitae is a hybrid of two Japanese species and has become a favored choice for creating privacy screens, windbreaks, and ornamental landscaping. To plant Green Giant Arborvitae, choose a well-draining location with fertile soil. Dig a hole that is as deep as the root ball and twice as wide. Position the tree in the center of the hole, making sure the top of the root ball is level with the surrounding soil. Water thoroughly after planting to settle the soil and remove any air pockets. Green Giant Arborvitae prefers full sun to partial shade. It can tolerate a wide range of soil conditions but thrives in well-drained, slightly acidic to slightly alkaline soil. Care for this arborvitae includes consistent watering, especially during its establishment phase, which can take up to a year. Once established, it becomes more drought-tolerant. Mulching around the base of the tree helps retain soil moisture and regulate temperature. Pruning can be done to shape the tree or remove dead branches, but it's generally not necessary. These arborvitaes are relatively low-maintenance and have excellent resistance to pests and diseases. However, it's essential to monitor for potential issues, especially if the tree is stressed due to drought or other environmental factors. With its impressive height and year-round greenery, Green Giant Arborvitae is a fantastic choice for creating natural screens or enhancing your landscape's beauty and privacy.
