Nigra Thuja's Brilliant Color Lasts the whole year through
When you plant Nigra Thuja Trees throughout your landscape you'll be rewarded with a winter wonderland that lasts all year long. That's because this tree absolutely thrives in harsh, cold weather, but does equally as well any season of the year. The rich, emerald green color of this amazing evergreen never fades. Its fanlike foliage creates a dense, functional screen that will provide the ultimate privacy.
Why build a fence when you can let Thuja do the job and add beauty to your property? Topping out at a height of 20 feet tall with a spread of 5-10 feet wide, it's a moderate grower that won't interfere with overhead structures or powerlines. With a lifespan of over 50 years, Thuja will provide your family with a generation of solitude and beauty.
Everything you wanted in a tree just got a whole lot easier
Another great feature of the Nigra Thuja is you won't have to fuss with it. This tree requires little to no maintenance. Just trim the horizontal growth to your liking whenever necessary or just let it grow naturally. It's as easy to care for as a picket fence-except you'll never have to repaint its incredible green color! Aside from privacy, many enthusiasts take advantage of the lovely, cashmere-like texture of this tree. Use it to line pathways, in foundation plantings, as an accent or specimen.
The possibilities with the Nigra Thuja are endless. Bring home this green beauty today.
