The Thuja Green Giant quickly gives you a lush, rich privacy screen (3-5 feet per year once established).
"Quickly screen out neighbors or unsightly areas....without taking up a lot of yard space..."
• Drought tolerant
• Disease & insect resistant
• Easy to grow & very adaptable
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 fill out into 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 all their roots intact. Some nurseries dig Thujas out of the ground, leaving most of the roots behind. This is a cheaper, quicker way to grow... but you lose a year or more of growth while your tree tries to replace it's root system. You also risk losing the tree, since it's less able to absorb vital nutrients and water.
Also, some Nurseries trim the narrow top on young Green Giants. This is called the “Leader”. This narrow top foot of growth races to the sky while the rest of the tree fills out behind it.
They clip the leader off so the tree puts it’s energy into growing thicker, rather than taller. The customer thinks they got a higher quality, fuller Green Giant when, in fact, their growth rate has been dramatically stunted. Plus when their tree finally does mature, it will have a less attractive shape.
We understand you don’t want to wait for your trees to grow. You can be assured that when you order from Fast Growing Trees Nursery, you are getting high quality, Thuja Green Giants, ready for rapid growth.
For quickest privacy, we now have a limited supply of large trees available. They sell out every year, so we recommend that you order yours now.

Hi, Pam here, with Fast Growing Trees.
Do you want more privacy? Well I've got the perfect tree for you. It's the Thuja Green Giant. It's bred to be the perfect privacy tree. It's a fast-growing, quality evergreen tree. It stays green and full year-round. You can plant them about every five feet for a solid privacy wall.
It takes up little space. It grows in a column-like shape-- not like a pyramid or like a Christmas tree like you think of most evergreens. From the base to the top, it's nice, thick, and full. And it doesn't take up a lot of yard space.
They're highly disease and pest resistant. You don't have to worry about bagworms or beetles or diseases.
You never have to trim these trees. They grow naturally neat and compact. They're uniform. They look great in rows, and once they're established, they're drought resistant. You don't have to worry about ice or snow damage, and they're certainly cheaper than an ugly privacy fence.
Some nurseries will also send out the Thuja Green Giant as a bare root. And some trees, it's fine to do that with, but certainly not with evergreens. They ship them out bare root without any soil on the roots because they're cheaper to ship. But it causes tremendous stress to the plant, and it can take up to a year just to adjust and get established in the ground.
At Fast Growing Trees, we'll ship you a Thuja Green Giant. It's got a well-established root system on it. It's got plenty of soil so that it's ready to plant into the ground and start growing right away to give you that great privacy hedge that you desire.
Thuja Green Giant can be planted any time of year!
