Exceeded their Commitments again
Very pleased with the Virginia Arborvitae. Ordered ten on Sunday, they arrived on Tuesday and were planted on Saturday. After 5 weeks all are healthy and have grown a few inches.
Better than Expected
First of all I had to change my tree order because I realized I had overestimated. Sean in customer service was awesome... so helpful and nice! When my trees arrived I was pleasantly surprised to find out how wonderful they looked. I ordered the 3-4 ft but figured I would get more on the 3 ft size but they were definitely more on the 4 ft' size and they looked so green and healthy. I couldn't wait to get them planted. I ordered 12 for a living privacy fence across the back of my yard (my yard bumps up to the side of the neighbors house so not a very aesthetic look:). I have a small yard so I didn't want trees that get too large like the 'Green Giant' so these were a perfect option. I'm excited for them to grow solid to make a privacy but lovely screen. I was really nervous about ordering trees online but the trees I found at the local nursery didn't look too great and I couldn't find these particular ones anywhere so I decided to risk it and am so very glad I did! I did buy the one year warranty because you just never know but so far so good:) Thanks FastGrowingTrees.com!
Planting & Care
Plant your Virginian™ Arborvitae in well-draining soil and in a spot that receives full sun or partial shade. Place in a hole twice as wide and just as deep as the root ball. There's no need to amend the soil, but you can add a thick layer of mulch around the base of the tree for weed prevention.
Watering: Make sure your Virginian™ Arborvitae receives one inch of water while it is establishing. Rain is usually enough to keep it hydrated, but you'll need to water it if you experience a period of drought. After it's established, there's no need to water your tree.
Maintenance: There is no pruning, fertilizing or disease management needed for the Virginian™ Arborvitae. You can prune as desired for creating a hedge, but it is not necessary.
