Brightens Cold Months with Gold Foliage

Add Some Cheer to Cold, Grey Days

The Forever Goldy’s natural hue is tinged with light yellow, and landscapers love how its foliage turns ‘gold with the cold.’ Look no further for an arborvitae whose glowing foliage shines in the summer and is a beacon of brightness in cold, gloomy weather.

Red-hued plants like roses contrast exceptionally well with the Forever Goldy Arborvitae. Consider adding one to a container garden.  Combined with bright blues, whites, oranges and deep purple flowers, this arborvitae tends to enhance all the colorful hues around it.

Create a Beautiful Border that Provides Privacy

If you’re looking for a colorful solution to block out neighbors and the sounds and lights of nearby traffic, this fast-growing tree is exactly what you want. Fully grown, it will reach 12 feet tall and widens to only 3 feet.  You won’t need a lot of yard space to create a tall living fence along your property line.

Feathery Foliage with No Clean-Up

This well-behaved tree doesn’t shed, so you’ll get maximum visual interest, all year round. The arborvitae’s soft foliage and upright, pyramidal stature can stand strong and elegant on your property.

Hardy Tree Withstands Cold Temperatures 

Performing best in average to moist, well-drained soil (in zones 3-7), the durable Forever Goldy is resistant to drought, cold weather and deer. If you’re looking for a tree that can stay healthy without the fuss, season after season, this is the arborvitae for you.

Breathe Life into Your Yard or Patio  

The Forever Goldy Arborvitae emits a fresh, evergreen scent all year.  The crisp, clean aroma that’s usually reserved for the holiday season provides that refreshing familiar air whether planted as a a hedge row, ornamental or in a container on your patio. 

Save Money While Increasing the Value of your Property

Tall, large trees can add upwards of $10,000 value to your home. Because these arborvitaes are fast growing, you can increase your re-sale value much more quickly than with most trees. 

By Planting around your air conditioner the Forever Goldie can decrease A/C bills in the summers due to its ability to provide shade, so your home is naturally cooler.  Because they’re very effective at blocking out the wind, they can reduce heating bills from 20% - 50%.

Order soon! This golden arborvitae tends to go fast.

Healthy and well-packaged
Our three 2-gallon-size Forever Goldie Arborvitae Trees arrived in two days and were healthy and well-packaged. We planted them 2 days after delivery. After two weeks in the ground, they still look healthy.

Awesome everything.
Nicely packed and very prompt to deliver after I ordered them. They’re still trying to acclimate to the yard which takes time.
Will work well with the reed grass and the purple smoke bushes for privacy and color

Pretty, but small
The tree itself was in great shape, but for $60 I expected a much larger tree. They were disappointing at only a mere foot tall. Similar arbervite (though not the same kind, I admit) at locally nurseries are literally 4 or 5 times taller and $20-30 cheaper. As i am using them for to provide privacy, I would purchase these larger, less expensive trees before purchasing more of the forever gold, as pretty as they are. They Would he beautiful on their own or in small groups in a garden however.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Forever Goldie Arborvitae Tree

Forever Goldie Arborvitae Tree Planting Diretions

Seasonal Information Hardy to Zone 4; generally considered a slow grower.

Location/Exposure This tree does best in full sun to partial shade. It will do better in a somewhat sheltered location.  Mulching around the root zone will help protect the roots in more exposed locations and in colder climates.

Soil Preferences Forever Goldie prefers to grow in average to moist conditions.  Avoid allowing it to dry out, another benefit to mulching liberally.  It’s not particularly choosy regarding pH, just avoid extremely acid or extremely alkaline sites as a guide. 

Planting – Pots/Containers Young plants are well suited to growing in large pots or containers.   Use a well drained organic potting mix containing about 20% organic matter.  Add a bit of sand to the mix if it feels too dense to assure good drainage through the pot.  Select a pot with plenty of room for the root ball, use about 2X the area of the root ball as a guide for the size of your pot.

Planting -- Garden Plant when soil conditions are workable, from fall through spring.  Your hole should be the same depth and  twice as wide as the root ball.  Sprinkle a little bone meal in the hole and mix well, then backfill with your garden soil blended with a modest amount of compost.

Watering For the first couple years, keep the soil well watered.  Once roots are established, it can tolerate some degree of drier conditions as long as you have mulched it well.  In pots and containers, keep the soil moist at all times and avoided extended drying out periods.

Fertilization Not particularly choosy regarding fertilizer applications, especially if you’re applying compost and mulch.  Use a general purpose slow release,  10-10-10 in modest rates according to label in the spring if desired.

Weed Control Mulch well to suppress weeds.

Pests and Diseases Fairly tolerant to insects and diseases, remove dieback growth to prevent entry points for disease and secondary insect feeding. Deer tend to leave them alone too.

Pruning, Propagation and other recs This relatively low maintenance tree doesn’t require much pruning, but if necessary for shaping, limit trimming to new growth of the current season, and any dieback branches.

I saw this tree fully grown near a road on my way to work. I admired it everytime I passed it. I decided to get one for my own yard so i can admire mine. I googled trees in Pennsylvania and came upon this site. Their trees are reasonable.

Will they hurt my dog and will the deer eat this tree ?
Janelle P on May 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Arborvitaes if eaten in large quantity, can result in dog skin allergy. They are not 100% deer proof as nothing is. If they do not have anything else to eat in the area they will try to eat them.
How big will the Goldy Arborvitae grow in a large pot?
Gail S on May 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It is not recommended that the Forever Goldie Arborvitae Tree be planted in a pot. It would do much better if planted in the ground.
on a stretch of 60 ft how many 4ever goldie trees I need if I like a private screen?
Ricardo P on Mar 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It is suggested to plant the Forever Goldie Arborvitae Tree between 3 to 5 feet apart only because some could get 3 ft and some might get 5 ft wide. It all depends on Mother Nature, your area the soil on how wide they will get.
WILLIAM K on May 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No there is not anything that need to put be cut once removed from the container.
Can I top these off once they grow to 4 to 6 feet?
Ken B on Aug 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, you can.
Do these trees do well in wet areas?
Pat F on Apr 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The Forever Goldie Arborvitae likes to be in well draining soil, they do not do well in soggy soil.
I have severely cut back my Goldie, will it grow back?
Sandy on Oct 24, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I would plant a new one you don’t cut arborvitae family bushes
