Emerald Green Thuja

Elegant Evergreens That Stop Growing at a Perfect 8-12 ft. Height

Height:

The heights we list are the actual size of your tree.

Many Nurseries advertise heights before they prune, then cut off several feet before shipping. While this reduces their shipping cost, it gives their customer a shorter tree than they bargained for. The tree will likely need an extra year to grow back the growth that was trimmed.

We do not prune evergreen trees for any reason. Evergreen trees typically hold their shape for the life of the tree and do not require any pruning or shearing.

Plus, we don't include the pot or root length in our measurements. This gives you an extra 1-2 ft. in tree size.

Our larger trees are usually one to two years older than our smaller ones and will typically give you better, thicker privacy the first full growing season.

It's Easy to Plant your Emerald Green Thuja

Specific Directions for Emerald Green Thuja

Plant your Emerald Green Thuja in area that receives full to partial sunlight. Emerald Green Thujas can tolerate shade, but prefer full sunlight. A southward facing area of your home would recieve the most sunlight. For a hedge place your Emerald Green Thujas two to three feet apart and their foliage will quickly fill in. If your soil is sandy or heavy in clay your Emerald Green Thuja will quickly adapt to it as long as your soil is well draining.

Watering your Emerald Green Thuja is very important while it's getting established. For the first two weeks after planting your Emerald Green Thuja water it every day. Hold the hose and count to 20 for a deep watering. After two weeks water your Emerald Green Thuja every three days. After the first month Your Emerald Green Thuja will only need water once a week, unless the weather is very dry, then water twice a week. Once your Emerald Green Thuja has been planted for six months it wont need any extra water.

Emerald Green Thujas usually don't need any fertilizer. If you want to give them an extra boost give them a slow releasing fertilizer early every Spring or Fall. If your Emerald Green Thuja doesn't have the right hue, check the pH balance of your soil with a pH meter. Your soil should be between 5.5 and 7.0. Add Aluminum Sulfate to lower your pH balance, and add lime to make the pH balance higher.


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Emerald Green Thuja.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.



Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Emerald Green Thuja gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Emerald Green Thuja again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

how fast does the emerald green Thuja grow?
cheryl S on Jun 9, 2014
Best Answer: I've only had my emerald green Thujas for a year now, but I've noticed significant growth in that time. Probably 4-5 inches! I planted mine as a privacy hedge with each tree about 3 feet apart. If the growth continues, I think that within the next two years, there will be no gap between the trees!

have bagworms How to treat?
A shopper on Jul 16, 2014
Best Answer: Remove their sacks by hand and spray your trees with a pesticide, or apply seven dust to your trees. You can remove their sacks now and spray with pesticide, but in September - October when females release their hormones males are attracted to the trees, so you'll need to use pesticide again. Also Bagworms hatch in May, so that's another good time to use insecticide.

How to cut back and make smaller?
A shopper on Jun 29, 2014
Best Answer: We bought fairly small Thuja trees, because we wanted to put them in pots beside our garage. They have grown some but we have not yet hd the need to trim them. I would say they could be hand trimmed somewhat at the top, as long as it was not too severe and done at the right time of year before any cold weather and freeze sets in.

How much water do these trees need? How often?
Tatyana S on Jun 13, 2014
Best Answer: Water your new tree every other day by holding a hose around it and counting to 20. If you don’t have a hose, five full large watering cans full of water will do. You’ll need to keep this up for the first two weeks.
The second two weeks, you can switch to watering every three days with the above method.
After the first month, water once a week unless it is dry and hot (no rain and temperatures above 80 degrees). If it is hot and dry, water twice a week.
After the first six months, the trees will be established and won’t need any extra water.

Would this tree be suitable for a container?
Andrea K on Jun 10, 2014
Best Answer: I think that, in it's early stages, it would be fine in a container - and quite attractive. The roots don't seem to require a lot of room; mine are planted between two retaining walls. However, as it grows taller (over a period of years), I believe that it would become unwieldy. At that point, it would require planting.

brown spots on trees ?????
A shopper on Aug 22, 2014
Best Answer: Brown spots on the Emerald Green Thurja can be caused by drought stress, disease or insect infestation. One of the reasons that I purchased them is that they were described as disease resistant but were highly susceptible to spider mites and needed to be sprayed in the spring and fall to protect them. The first thing is you need to determine is which of the above are the cause of your brown spots. If you have a nursery in your area I would take a clipping to them and find out, they generally do this free of charge. (Lowes and Home Depot do not do this well, if at all) It will depend on what area you’re in. If the rest of your tree looks healthy and is still growing it’s probably drought stress (or dry conditions brought on by high winds, or winter damage). If the browning continues to grow it will be one of the other two. I haven't dealt with disease yet, but for spider mites my nursery told me I can use the same thing that I spray my roses with (using Seven this year).

Best Answer: The recommended growing zone for the Emerald Green Thuja is 3-8 so it is hard to say how it would do in zone 9. There have been people who have planting outside of their growing zone and they have thrived. If you do purchase outside of the recommended growing zone we cannot guarantee the trees.

Will my Trees and Shrubs Look Like the Photographs?

Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos.

Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.

Bare Root trees are shipped without dirt or any green foliage showing. Some customers who have never planted bare root before, think that they received a "dead stick" with roots. These dormant trees are basically sleeping over the winter as most trees do. Because of their hibernation-like stage, this is a great way to transplant these trees. Since a bare root tree lacks foliage, they need very little moisture.

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
