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.

I have purchased around 18 trees and bushes here. 2 died early and the company replaced them for me. Recently added 4 more and all are doing very well.
FULL SPEED AHEDGE BABY!!
I placed my order January last year and ordered 7 of these and Thugi’s for our property line due to wanting fast privacy thanks to a unwanted neighbor. Whelp here’s the proof how MAGNIFICENT THESE TRULY ARE… It’s been almost a year and a half and these have literally taken off to fulfill our dream .. I definitely am a believer in these and only wish they’d get larger ones back in to purchase versus 2-3 foot tall ones . There unbelievably everything described and even bought the rocket powder for all of them .. I did have 2 not make it but Fast Growing Trees is true to their word and I even bought the extended warranty because of the prices of these . We’re extremely pleased and wanted to share our proof . We added tree stakes because of the fast growth and strong winds we get at times . You can see the growth and it’s amazing Pleasure doing business with this company 100% ! Thanks Tammy in Naples Fl
American Pillar Arborvitae

Fast Growing Hedge
We previously had a fast growing tree that we planted in our home in Mississippi. It was fantastic. It grew at an unbelievable rate. Therefore when we wanted a hedge to help cut down on the traffic noise at our house in Florida we ordered 30 American Pillar Arborvitae from fast growing trees. The trees have been in the ground a little more than two weeks, so it it too soon to tell how good they are. But at this point, with the exception of maybe two or three, they are doing well.
