In fact, you don't have to do anything to them. They're drought tolerant and have no significant insect or disease problems.
You'll never have to worry about mixing chemicals or spraying these trees. Not prone to deer or bagworm problems.
This is a tough tree. Resists ice and snow damage. Grows in almost any soil, even sandy loam or heavy clays. Prefers direct sunlight, but also does well in partial shade.
The Thuja Green Giant is the perfect fast growing evergreen for a privacy hedge or wind screen. Plant one every 5-6 feet and they quickly create a dense barrier.
You can easily trim them once a year to your desired height. Left unpruned, Thuja Green Giants planted in rows can reach as high as 30-40 feet.
Your Thuja foliage stays soft & thick all year long.
Beware...not all Thuja Green Giants are the same.
Some nurseries dig Thujas out of the ground and send them bare rooted or "ball & burlap". This can leave up to 90% of the roots behind. The tree can lose up to a year of growth, while struggling to replace it's root system. You also risk losing the tree, since it's less able to absorb vital nutrients and water.
True Thuja Green Giants are hybrids grown from branch cuttings, not seed. They need to grow below the ground before they can grow above the ground. Some nurseries sell freshly rooted cuttings, that can take up to a year to reach the size and root mass of our one gallons.
You can be assured that when you order from Fast Growing Trees, you are getting well rooted Thuja Green Giants, ready for explosive growth.
For quickest privacy, we now have a limited supply of large trees available.

Specific Directions for Thuja Green Giant
When you're ready to plant your Thuja Green Giant select a sunny area that receives partial shade. Your Thuja will adapt well to your natural soil even is it is sandy or heavy in clay. You will not need to add any fertilizer to your soil.
During the growing season Thuja Green Giants require frequent waterings every few days. If you feel that your soil is dry to the touch about an inch down, then it's time to give your Thuja Green Giant another deep watering. Spreading a three inch layer of mulch around the base of your tree in a two foot diameter around the trunk will help hold the moisture in.
|Step 1 - Dig Your Hole
Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Thuja Green Giant.
|Step 2 - Place Your Plant
Next, separate the roots of your Thuja Green Giant gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.
|Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole
As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.
