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.

If you're planting a hedge, mark out a visual guide by placing stakes five to six feet apart and looping string around them. Plant the where the stakes are and they'll grow together to make a dense privacy screen.

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.

I ordered 8 of the 1-2 feet of these trees. They arrived very well packed. Given the cross-country delivery and recent hot weather, I am very pleased with how well they look when I opened the package, even though there are a few with bottom branches damaged, which did not seem to be a big deal for me. After planning the plant area a bit better, I realise that we actually need 7 more of these right away. There was not enough time to order again from this website and wait for the delivery. So we went to our local Lowes (note, we didnot even try to find other cheaper or better alternatives from this particular Lowes that was convenient for us). Only to find out the ones from local shop at least for now look much better and bushy and taller and cheaper. I am going to plant the ones from this site and the ones from Lowes in a row and we shall see who will win the competition in a few months time and report back. I noticed the ones from this site have fertilizer scattered on the top surface, which is good and thoughtful of this seller.

Trees arrived looking very healthy. My only negative is that they were very much on the 12"" side of size, when advertised at 1-2 feet. Seems we got the little ones. Nevertheless, excellent quality and delivery. Hope they all make it

We planted 3 of these in 2010. They were about 4 ft tall when planted and they grew about 6 inches a year until the winter of 2013. The first two winters I put a deer fence around each tree. I did not do this in 2013 and the deer ate each one them up to the 5ft level leaving only 10 in cap on top they could not reach. I am going to have to replace them all. We live in a zone 3 location.

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 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.

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!

A shopper on Jul 5, 2014
Best Answer: What do you mean my pest? I have only had my second order of these trees for a couple of months and so far they have not been bothered by insects or deer. My first order, however, did not survive the cold winter of New York and did not grow as fast as I was led to believe. Also, the height of the advertised tree tends to be on the lower end of the scale.

Can these be cut off at the top and not die?
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.

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.

John S on Aug 2, 2014
Best Answer: Mix half a bag of potting mix with your natural soil for each tree. Each tree will need 3 fertilizer tablets each. We often carry a larger 5 to 6 ft size in the Emerald Green Thuja, but that size is currently on back order until further notice.
