One of the Fastest Growing Privacy Screens
The American Pillar Arborvitae is a one-of-a-kind choice when it comes to privacy. Why? Well, for starters, it grows incredibly fast. After the first year, this tree grows more than 3 feet every year until it reaches 30 feet in height. Plus, since it's extremely narrow and dense (only 4 feet in width), it's the ideal screen.
There's simply no better option for a privacy screen because it's cheaper than a traditional fence, enclosing your entire backyard and saving money in maintenance. The dense growth habit and narrow width make it an absolutely choice pick. And since it can grow up to 30 feet, it's even well-suited to second story balconies and decks.
Even better? This tree is luxe and low-maintenance, without the need for a lot of care. Resistant to extreme heat, cold, wind, and ice, it's super strong. A little watering and it's good to grow!
And because it's long-lived, there's no need to worry about replanting - this tree will offer privacy and beauty for generations. Whether you want to save money and create a natural fence, or you just want to enjoy the deep green, dense leave along entryways and beyond, it wows.
This brand new variety of Arborvitae has impressed tree lovers around the country, and it's in high demand. Order your own American Pillar Arborvitae today!
Planting & Care
The American Pillar Arborvitae can be planted in any soil or air condition, but it needs to be placed in a spot that receives full sun. Plant in a hole twice as wide, but just as deep as the root ball. There is no need to amend the soil. Water thoroughly after planting to establish roots. You can add a small wire fence if you want to block access for a dog or small animal. This fence will be invisible after a few years, because the tree will effectively work as a fence once it reaches maturity.
Watering: This tree can tolerate wet or dry conditions. Be sure to water the tree weekly in its young life to ensure proper growth. Try to maintain even moisture for the first year.
Maintenance: This tree does not require any pruning, fertilizing or pest or disease management. If you want to reduce the size, you can prune off the top once it reaches over 10 ft. This will stunt the growth and allow you to customize your screen size.
