Why Full Speed A Hedge® American Pillar Arborvitaes?
The Full Speed A Hedge® 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 Full Speed A Hedge® 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!

Planting & Care
1. Planting: The Full Speed A Hedge® 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.

Customer Reviews & Photos
- customer service
A friend recommended Fast Growing Trees so I ordered 10 of the Full Speed A Hedge American Pillar Aborvitaes. The website said the trees would be 2-3 feet tall when they arrived, but I was pleasantly surprised that they were actually 3 to 4 feet tall, very healthy and perfectly packaged for shipping. I didn't receive 4 of the 10 trees and when I contacted customer service I spoke with a representative who took care of the problem and within 4 days I received the missing trees. Great trees, great customer service...very happy!!
Love my thuja trees. Can already see some growth after a couple months.
I called 2x asking questions b4 I made my purchases. Was hesitant about ordering live nursery stock online too. OMG! The customer service reps were wonderful! So helpful and knowledgeable. FastGrowingTrees.com nailed it with their reps!
Full Speed A Hedge…
Great experience overall! Had never purchased trees online before. Process very easy and FAST. All 20 arrived in excellent condition. Planted, mulched and watered the day they arrived. Now, just waiting for time to pass and see how they grow and fill in. Bought to hide unsightly neighbor. Can’t grow fast enough
