The ‘Green Giant’ arborvitae is one of our favorite trees! You can see in the photo above 20’+ Green Giant arborvitae planted at 4′ apart about 12 years ago.
It is a very fast-growing, hardy, fragrant, and deer-resistant evergreen variety that provides you with year-around privacy, beauty, and a noise screen. In addition, these majestic evergreen trees offer a great visual background for beautiful and colorful yellow, blue, lavender, or red flower beds in front of them.
Plant NOW to jump start their growth for this Summer and Fall. IN STOCK NOW… but we have limited stock and these trees will sell out quickly.
These fast growing trees potentially adding 2′- 3′ of growth (or more) per year when young (with good fertilizer, regular watering, and in properly prepared soil) and are soft and pleasant to the touch. They love full sun, but will still grow well in half sun/ half shade. USDA zone 5-7.
You can be creative by planting these in a staggered pattern or in a straight line to create a beautiful living ‘green wall’ to enjoy, as opposed to an unattractive metal or wood fence that you have to look at every day. These trees also provide great song bird nesting sites and year around protection for birds during inclement weather.
These trees offer a great environmental and neighbor-friendly solution to creating privacy and a better environment for all. They are fragrant, evergreen, and tolerate clay soil, and black walnut.
We suggest this variety frequently to our customers as a smarter privacy replacement for the many other evergreen types that often fail from wind blow over, shearing in half from snow/ ice storms, and just growing too oversized, or simply growing too slowly to meet their needs.
The ‘Green Giant’ arborvitae is our ‘Number One’ choice for a privacy barrier and security screening.
We recommend 4′-5′ spacing (trunk to trunk) to create that fast growing privacy and security screening without overcrowding the trees. Over 15 years they will grow to an approximate 20′ height with a 6′-7′ overall width or more, depending upon growing conditions.
The sooner you buy and plant these trees, the more they will grow this year.
We highly recommend this evergreen specimen.
