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 20-30 feet.
Your Thuja foliage stays soft & thick all year long.
Beware...not all Thuja Green Giants are the same.
Make sure your Green Giants have been grown in pots with their roots intact. 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.
