Much-needed privacy from neighbors with very little space required - the Thuja is a living evergreen fence. The Thuja Green Giant is a high-quality, easy pick that grows 3 to 5 feet per year once it's established. And it's drought tolerant, insect and disease resistant.

Double or more in size in two years
Our trees just finished their second year, and have grown a lot. We bought 5 of the 2-3 foot trees and they are about 6 feet tall now. We don't prune them and they're is a mostly shaded area. They're healthy with no diseases or bugs. Another couple years, and they should be starting to be a great wind block. We're very happy with our trees.

Healthy Thujas
We purchased 14 Thujas from Fast-Growing Trees and they have been in the ground for about a month. We prepared the area properly before planting and the results are awesome. All 14 present as happy and healthy and new growth can already be seen. The packing and shipping was excellent! 2 trees to a long box with them at opposing ends and well potted for transport. Shipping was fast and within a few days they arrived at our home.This is for sure 5 star service and I would highly recommend this company and would purchase from them again.

impressed with these trees
Have had these for a year now. Bought 8 and they seem to be thriving....they have grown about 6 inches but expect them to double that growth next year as the ground had been in turmoil after we yanked the previously planted evergreens out...I am sooooo anxious as this is the tree I had requested from my local nursery but did not get the FIRST time we planted!!!!!

Great Trees
I ordered sixteen 2-3 feet Thuja Green Giants. I was surprised how fast they came, how well they were packaged, and how well they looked. I have had them now for about 3-4 weeks and they are doing well. I planted then in mid September and installed a drip irrigation system so they are well watered. Looking forward to purchasing more next year.

Planting & Care



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


Thuja Green Giant Planting Diretions

If you’re looking for a fast-growing evergreen tree, look no further than Thuja ‘Green Giant’. This tall evergreen plant is perfect for privacy screening, fast-growing shade (when planted on the south side of a property lot) and winter color when everything else in the landscape is brown and dreary. Thuja ‘Green Giant’ is a fast-growing tree that can grow up to three feet a year. The mature height is 60 feet. It will reach 30 feet in 30 years, with a final spread of 12-20 feet. On its own, it makes a majestic focal point tree for the corner of the yard.

Why Everyone Loves Thuja ‘Green Giant’
Thuja ‘Green Giant’ grows almost everywhere. It is hardy in USDA zones 5-9, which covers a huge portion of the United States. From the Northeast to the Southeast to the Midwest, Thuja ‘Green Giant’ is the hedging and screening tree of choice. It isn’t picky about soil and will grow well in sand or heavy clay equally well. It is also practically maintenance-free, the only major upkeep is hedge shearing after several years of growth. Unlike some evergreen plants, Thuja ‘Green Giant’ has few pest and disease problems. If you’ve had problems with Leyland Cypresses in your yard, this plant is a great replacement.

Planting directions: This is a large landscape tree and as such, requires a bit of planning before planting. First, measure the area where you would like to plant your hedge or row. You will primarily need the length of the area of planting to estimate the number of trees you need. 

Planted in a row, Giants form a dense hedge quickly. To achieve this effect, plant the trees 5-6 feet apart in a row. If you want to maintain the pyramidal/conical form, plant the trees 14 feet apart in a row. The closer together you plant, the denser the hedge and the more trimming you’ll have to do to maintain shape.

1) When planting Thuja ‘Green Giant’ dig a hole for each tree that is three times as wide as the root ball but just as deep. You don’t need to add anything to the planting hole.
2) Take the tree out of the pot and place it in the hole.
3) The soil around the tree should be at the same level as the soil around the planting hole. If the tree looks like it is too deep pick up the tree and toss some more soil into the hole. Trees will settle a bit after planting and you never want the point where the tree roots meet the trunk to be under the soil.
3) Once you have the hole depth adjusted, fill in around the tree with the same soil you took out when initially digging the hole. Tamp down as you fill to cut back on any air pockets from forming.
4) Water the tree by holding the hose on it and counting to 20 then mulch to conserve soil moisture. This will also help keep back competing weeds and grasses from growing around the planting site.

Watering: Follow this watering schedule to ensure the best results for your newly planted Green Giants.
1) For the first two weeks, water your new tree every other day by holding a hose around it and counting to 20. If you don’t have a hose, 2 large watering cans full of water will do (smaller trees may only need a light soaking so a single can may suffice).
2) The second two weeks, switch to watering every three days with the same method mentioned above.
3) After the first month, water once a week unless it is dry and hot (no rain and temperatures above 80 degrees). If it is hot and dry, water twice a week.
4) After the first six months, the trees will be established and won’t need any extra water. Your natural rainfall should be sufficient at this stage.

Mulching: Help your new trees get started by mulching around them. A layer of shredded hardwood mulch, three inches deep, extending one to two feet out from the tree trunk will help the soil retain moisture for the tree. Resist the urge to “volcano” much! Do not pile the mulch up around the tree trunk. Pull the mulch away from the trunk at least three inches all the way around. If left too close to the trunk it can promote rot and fungus.

Fertilizing: Thuja ‘Green Giant’ should not need any extra fertilizer unless your entire lawn and garden has problems and needs regular fertilizing. A balanced tree and shrub fertilizer in the beginning of spring is best if applying fertilizer.

Pruning: You won’t have to prune this tree if you are growing it with enough space for it to maintain its naturally graceful pyramid shape. If you’re growing several close together as a hedge, you can shear the plants yearly after the final frost but it is better to plant a shorter, narrower plant that you don’t have to contain.

Deer: Possibly the best feature of this evergreen is that deer don’t favor the taste. What’s the point in planting a beautiful evergreen if you have to cover it up with burlap or deer netting every winter? Thuja ‘Green Giant’ does just fine without those ugly protections. If you live in an area with heavy deer pressure, spray Thuja ‘Green Giant’ every three to six months with deer repellent. That’s all the protection you need. 

Thanks to its ease of care and maintenance, Thuja ‘Green Giant’ is a perfect choice for any homeowner who needs a fast-growing evergreen tree for privacy.

what is the spacing in between each tree to form a solid wall ?
blackie on Jun 14, 2014
BEST ANSWER: We recommend to plant the Thuja green giants 5-6 foot apart to create a nice privacy barrier.
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.
trees doing good seem like turning a little yellow on tip any concern ?
william b on Nov 10, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Most of the time with evergreen tips are turning yellow, it is a watering issue. Either too much water or not enough. You may need to check or change your watering habits, to see a difference.
When is it best to cut the tops in order to get a more full tree? Mine are 12 feet high and we'd like them to get as high as possible, but also look very full.
Barbara B on Oct 13, 2014
BEST ANSWER: You can trim or top evergreens anytime of year. you may want to get them up to 15-16 ft tall before you start to trim them, but once you top them they will start to get wider and thicker.
Is the height measurement from the soil line up or from the bottom of the root ball or container up?
Terri on Apr 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: We measure our trees from the top of the pot to the top of the trees. We do not count the root ball when measuring our trees.
How soon after receiving do Thuja plants have to be planted?
Chris C on Aug 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: As long as you water them upon receiving them, you do not have to plant them in the ground right away.
How does it do in shade?
A shopper on Jun 4, 2014
BEST ANSWER: These can thrive in partial shade, however, you might not get the full potential of growth rate per year (3-5ft).
60 ft is enormous - can I plant the, closely and naturally stunt them to 20ft? How closely can I plant the, and how short can I stunt them to avoid regular trimming?
Brandon K on Aug 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: How about planting the smaller variety that they sell?
How far from a property line should these be planted?
A shopper on Sep 29, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I planted them approximately 6 feet from our property line, and this seems to be adequate. They do spread some at the bottom, but not much more than that.
How do these trees handle high water table?
Amanda B on May 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The Thuja Green Giants do not like to be planted in soggy soil, they like well-drained soil and the drought tolerance is good.
When is the best time to plant the Thuja Green Giant?
Amanda W on Jul 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi AmandaIt depends on the zone you live in. Here is the standard for Thuja Green Giants.Zone 5 early spring Zone 6 spring or fall. Zones 7,8,& 9 year round as long as you can dig a hole in the ground.
are these suitable if grown in pots? The yard is concrete and does not offer ability to plant in ground.
pam g on Aug 23, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The Thuja green giants grow to be a very large evergreen. You would need an extremely large container to keep them growing well. We do have other evergreens that will live much better in containers. Maybe consider the Emerald Green Thuja.
do they grow in shade?
A shopper on Oct 15, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The Thuja green giants can grow in a shaded area, they may not grow as fast as they would if they have more sun. But a shaded area should not kill them.
winter care? We live in Michigan and I want to be sure to protect them from the heavy snowfalls over the winter. Any tips?
Lisa S on Oct 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: A layer of shredded hardwood mulch, three inches deep, extending one to two feet out from the tree trunk. Also, maintain your trees during that time by knocking the snow off the branches and allowing the trees to stay upright.
Website says, "The Thuja Green Giant quickly gives you a lush, rich privacy screen (3-5 feet per year once established)." What does 'once established' mean? How long to get established?
Paul M on Mar 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I planted 75 Thuja Green Giant trees in 2005 and 7 more in 2015. It seems they need one full summer (growing season) to establish their root structure and then they took off. The growth in years 2+ was significantly better than the first 12 months.
Please note that this is affected by the amount of sun and water they get. The trees that have done the best for me get lots of water and lots of sunshine. The trees planted on a slope did not grow as fast - my theory is that the water ran past the trees and did not allow time for the roots to soak it up. The ones that did the best were in a shallow depression that tended to stay wet longer after a rain.
If i'm planting them inside a fence, how far from the fence should I plant them?
mikec on Jul 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Plant them about five feet from the fence
How fast does the Thuja green giant grow? I am getting several different answers. I need a very fast growing evergreen to use as a natural wall at the edge of my yard. If it is not fastest growing, what is? We live in zone 5 - Northern Indiana.
Marianne M on Feb 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Once they are established in the ground, they can grow 3-5 feet per year.
Is this tree wind resistant?
Maysie on Mar 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This tree is VERY wind-resistant...very tough. It's super-important that the tree is planted in really good amended soil - I planted my first specimens on a very windy hillside with nothing but construction dirt and drip irrigation.
are these sent bare-root?
Richard D on Sep 14, 2015
BEST ANSWER: We do not send the these out bare root. They should be potted or the root ball will be wrapped depending on the size.
Do these Thuja Green Giants grow in clay soil? Our soil is clay (good for ponds) and therefore doesn't offer loose soil for roots to expand.
G H on Mar 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I have been told that my soil is clay. However, where I have my trees planted, the soil was easy enough to dig. It doesn't drain very quickly, which would indicate a heavier soil. I have not lost any trees (10), but they haven't grown as fast as I would have liked. They all look healthy, and I will see how they are after another year of growing.
Is this easy to grow?
Linda Shek on Jun 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I simply removed from the packaging, teased the roots, dug the hole, planted and back filled, and watered. Now, after three years, the trees are at least four times as big. No loss of any trees. Be sure to space appropriately for your application. I would venture to say that after 5-6 years from planting, I won't see the street and nobody on the street will see me.
What time year do u plant?
Gina S on Jun 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: They can be planted all year, as long as the ground isn’t frozen. If you plant your tree during the summer, especially during a heat wave of drought then give your tree extra water. The best time to plant is in the fall, six weeks before the first frost so your tree can get rooted into the ground before winter, or in the spring six weeks after the final frost, giving it time to become established before summer heat sets in. Keep in mind that planting during the summer still gives your tree enough time to get rooted in before the winter.
Will these trees be a problem with deer?
Dawn C on May 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Deer have never touched mine. They do eat my white pine trees to the ground.
The description says this tree is maintenance free does not need fertilizer and soil conditioner, yet both are offered when purchasing. So, does it need fertilizer or not?
Linda S on Dec 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The Root Rocket is not a fertilizer it is a special mix of nutrients that have been horticulturalist tested and proven to help young plants in the transition from their nursery containers into the ground or a more permanent container. The fungi and beneficial bacteria in the root rocket go to work instantly, creating a nutritious environment for plants. The fungi brings old soil to life by filling it with nitrogen and phosphorous, for plant roots to enjoy.
will the trees be delivered to the planting location or the driveway?
joe c on Jun 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: They will be delivered to the address given at time of order. Once delivered they are usually left at your door and you will receive tracking once we ship them.
Do the plants have to have partial shade ?
Ed R on May 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The will do fine in partial shade, they will just not grow as fast.
What is the minimum distance these trees should be planted from a house foundation?
Joanna R on Dec 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Plant 5-6 feet away from the foundation.
What's the difference between Thujas and Leyland Cypress? Which will do better in shade? Can either of them be shaped to grow full but not higher than 10-12 feet?
D M on Jul 12, 2018
Safe for dogs?
Jennifer C on Mar 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I'm not sure what you mean by "safe". If you mean safe to eat, I wouldn't know. But I do have a dog and all he does is pee on the trees and they don't seem to mind!
Will this tree do a good job at blocking road noise?

BEST ANSWER: My dad had these Evergreens, about 20 or so, on his property and when the city came through to widen the interstate the city tore them all down and the noise from the interstate drove by dad crazy. So yes they do indeed stop a lot of noise from vehicles, not completely of course but certainly they help. Remember, the closer you plant them, the better the noise control.
