The Fastest Growing Quality Evergreen

The Thuja Green Giant quickly gives you a lush, rich privacy screen (3-5 feet per year once established).

- Drought tolerant
- Disease & insect resistant
- Easy to grow & very adaptable

You can block out neighbors while taking very little yard space. Thuja Green Giants grow in a uniform shape and height. You get that classic French Renaissance look without having to prune or shear.

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.

They did the Job!
These trees were definitely fast growing and did the job. Our neighbors don't have to look at the backside of our barn(shed) and we have the privacy for the late night fires in the firepit or quiet gatherings on the deck. Oh...and best of all, these trees are maintenance free!

My house sits on two corner lots. My backyard faces the street on two sides and I wanted privacy. My lot slopes to the back so a fence would not do much good because everyone could see over it. I order 36 tuja green giants. They have been in the grown a few months now and are doing well. I put a weed barrier and about an inch of mulch on average in the entire planing area. I planted them approximately 5 feet apart with a 1 foot stagger. So far they are doing great. they have survied very dry weather. I watered them for about a month but since then they have been doing well on their own.

December 31, 2012
I purchased 12 of the smallest sized Thuja Giant trees to plant as a privacy buffer. I was worried whether they would truly be deer resistant due to the problem we have with deer eating other plants & bushes which were on the deer risistant lists. Fortunately, my Thujas have not been eaten by the deer! They are GREAT with 4 foot growth in less than 1-1/2 years. Im hoping the second year of growth will yield even better results

So far, so good
Plant arrived in a timely manner and appeared to be in excellent health. The packaging was adequate and obviously kept it safe. I planted it according to instructions and appears to be growing fine. I am anxious to see if it makes it through the winter! I am extremely pleased with Fast-Growing Trees!

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Thuja Green Giant


Thuja Green Giant Planting Diretions 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.

While we have not seen this plant before, we like its pyramidal shape and didn't want something as big as the Leyland Cypress at maturity. This appears that it will fit in nicely with the Hollies we planted last fall to provide a complete and picturesque privacy screen.

What is the life span of these trees?
Cyndi on Feb 19, 2015
Best Answer: Thuja Green Giant has not been in existence but 40 years, and the original tree is still living, so we know it will make it at least 4 decades. We think it will live considerably longer, up to 150 years, since one of its parents, Thuja plicata, is quite long-lived, often living over 200 years, with some specimens actually being over 1,000 years old! As with any tree, the lifespan and its attractiveness are affected by growing conditions such as overcrowding, drought and general growing conditions.

what does this website say this tree can't be grown in texas I'm in Dallas, zone 8, which should be included?
thanks
Sol R on May 30, 2014
Best Answer: I think the site says that this shrub is not recommended for Texas. I don't know their exact reasons, but I assume they must have gotten some complaints from Texas residents. I live in Austin and purchased two of that Thujas prior to that warning going up. They are both doing great. They've grown fast and are beautiful. The only thing I can think of is the heat. They do require a good amount of water in summer. They wouldn't be the best choice if you have stiff water restrictions. They needed two good soaks per week to get them through summer. Hope that helps. Mike M.

how far should they be from septic system?
Valerie B on Apr 22, 2015
Best Answer: In 10 years, this tree will grow up to 12 feet wide, and the roots grow a bit wider than the branches do. It will slowly keep growing to 20 feet wide. I would allow at least 15 feet from a septic system, just to be safe.

We want privacy in our backyard because the fence slopes down and the neighbors can see into our backyard. We have about 6 feet between the fence and the in-ground pool. Can we plant these trees about 5 ft apart in this space, or will the roots damage the pool?
Jared S on Mar 18, 2015
Best Answer: 6 feet is not enough space between your fence and the pool to grow green Giant, for it allows only 3 feet between the trunk and your fence or your pool. This tree will grow up to 12 feet wide in 10 years and gets even wider as it ages, and the roots grow a little wider than the branches do. If you live in zone 7 or south, you might look at Italian cypress, which gets really tall and stays really thin; Sky Pencil Holly stays really thin, but will only grow 8-10 feet tall, if that is enough height for you; and, again if you are in zone 7 or south, you could look at Multiplex Bamboo, which gets 15-20 feet tall. It is a clumping form, not an invasive running form, but its roots can spread, so if your pool walls are thin, I would choose something else.

How much planting mix do you need for 6 1-2 ft trees?
Gail F on Apr 29, 2015

pam g on Aug 23, 2014

I have an 18 foot green giant that is very thin at the bottom (you can see through it). Will it thicken up when planted in the sun?
Jennifer H on May 1, 2015
Best Answer: Thuja Green Giant definitely grows denser in full sun than in shade, even part shade. However, at 18 feet, it would be easier and cheaper to simply plant a new one in your sunny area, where it can start out right, than to try to move the old one. After all, it's thin bottom is pretty established and it will be hard for the plant to re-grow it, especially with the shock of transplanting at such a large size.

do they hold up good to heavy snow and wind? how far away to place from chain link fence? about how many for apporox and 70' straight single row solid wall?
anthony p on Apr 25, 2015
Best Answer: Green Giant sheds snow much more efficiently than most upward-branching trees since it has only one leader and the limber quality of the branches tends to dump the snow rather than hold it. It is challenged by heavy, persistent winds, especially when young, as it tends to catch the wind and bend, but it handles moderate wind exposure well, especially when planted closely in a mass. They mature to 12-20 feet wide, so you will need to plant no less than 6-8 feet from your fence. To make a solid wall really quickly, many plant them on 5-foot centers, which means 14 trees for 70 feet. If you go with 6 foot centers, you will only need 11 or 12 trees.

I'm sizing nozzles for a handline sprinkler system. I am planning on irrigating 2 rows of trees spaced as your recomendations. How many gpm (gallons per minute) should I design for?
Mike R on Aug 24, 2015
Best Answer: Hi Mike
Here is a guide not knowing what size nozzle your using. This chart gives you some choices, drip irrigation, hoses, and bubble irrigation are the best choices. You want to water the perimeter of the roots not against the tree.
2. How Much Water Does Your System Apply?
Here are some typical output numbers for common plant watering systems. Notice the huge
difference between the drip emitter, bubbler, and watering hose outputs.
Drip Emitter 1/2 – 4 gallons per hour
Bubbler 1/2 – 2 gallons per minute
Hose 2 – 5 gallons per minute
3. How Long and How Often Should I Water?
Refer to the chart to the left and write down the watering needs of all of your plants. If you use drip
emitters, adjust the number and size of emitters on each plant so that your plants get the water they need
in two to six hours. For example, the chart shows that a 10-foot tree needs 59 gallons of water. A good
setup for this tree would be six 4-gallon per hour emitters, running for 2-1/2 hours (6 x 4 x 2.5 = 60 gallons).

Best Answer: No, the Thuja Green Giant does not have shedding needles.

how often should you water the trees after planting?
wThomas on Jun 19, 2015
Best Answer: Newly planted trees require more water than established ones. You need to water as often as 3-4 items a week when newly planted for 2 weeks, depending on rainfall - check the soil with your fingers to be sure that you keep the soil moist, but not wet; wet, boggy soil will kill the roots. If it is wet, don't water until the soil is slightly moist but not dry. The third and fourth weeks, switch to watering every 3 days. After the first month, water once a week unless it is hot and very dry, in which case you will need to water twice a week. After 6 months, you should not have to worry about watering unless there is a prolonged drought.

live in tn just planted 6 of these trees (1 to 2 ft tall) was watching weather and next weekend one night is suppose to get down in the low 30s was wondering if there is anything to worry about them freezing and is there anything I could do they will only be in ground only a week? thanks
william b on Oct 26, 2014
Best Answer: If it's only an overnight frost, into the 30's, the soil will only freeze down a 1/4" or so. Doesn't seem like it should be a problem, since almost all the roots are lower than that.
If you want to be extra safe, you could put a layer of mulch on the ground around the tree, just pull it back from the trunk in the morning , when it warms up a bit. Trees don't grow well with stuff up against the trunk.

Should we stake our green giant 12'inch tree over the winter?
A shopper on Aug 11, 2014
Best Answer: No need to from our experience. They've all maintained straight form through ice, wind and snow. However, note that in suburban areas even "deer resistant" plants are vulnerable to voracious winter appetites. Due to our older Thuja Green Giants being gnawed during the past few winters we fenced this past year's replacements and they survived nicely.
