Product Description

One of the Fastest Growing Privacy Screens 

Why American Pillar Arborvitaes?

The American Pillar is one of our most popular varieties due to its fast, full growth. After the first year, this tree grows more than 3 feet every year until it reaches its mature height. Plus, since it's extremely narrow, it’s an ideal screen for even tighter spaces.

And there's simply no better option for a privacy screen because it's cheaper than a traditional fence. The American Pillar’s dense growth habit and manageable width make it perfect for borders, street hedging and beyond. Since it can grow up to 30 feet, it's even well-suited as a buffer for second-story balconies and decks. Even better? It’s resistant to extreme heat, cold, wind, and ice, so it's super strong. A little watering and it's good to grow!

Why is Better

First, 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 leaves next to entryways, the American Pillar shines. But the best part is that it’s grown and monitored at our nursery so that it’s a proven performer when it arrives to your door. And we ship your American Pillar with its root ball and health intact for best results.

This fresh, full variety of Arborvitae has impressed tree lovers around the country, and it's in high demand. Order your own American Pillar Arborvitae today, before it’s gone!

American Pillar Arborvitae

Great! They were planted and growing nicely

Just right for our needs

This tree was easy to plant, and is beginning to grow nicely in front of a fence bordering our property. Looks like we will soon have a nice, private setting that masks our neighbor's backyard from our view!

One tree was shipped broken

I have planted all of the trees but they have not started to take root and grow yet so I don’t know how they will turn out. They were the size indicated but one arrived with its top snapped off. I have planted it anyway and hope that it will survive. Will know more later in the season.

Planting & Care

1. Planting: 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 (6 to 8 hours of sunlight per day). 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. 

2. 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.

3. Pruning: 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 feet. This will stunt the growth and allow you to customize your screen size.
