Full Speed A Hedge® American Pillar Arborvitae

Thuja occidentalis 'American Pillar'

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.

  • 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

  • It’s resistant to extreme heat, cold, wind, and ice, so it's super strong - a little watering and it's good to grow

Seems alright so far

Planted a few weeks ago and they are doing alright. A few of the trees were bent into the box at a weird angle and are growing crooked, hopefully they right themselves over time

Before and After - One Year

Doing well after one full year In May 2023 I Purchased 11 of the 3-4’ tall size for along a driveway fence here in Cape Cod. They came in great shape and I planted them within a 1-2 days as per instructions. A year later - May 2024 they are thriving. Very happy with how these are doing- they look healthy, have held up well in our New England weather. I will update next year!

Impressed

I ordered 8 4-5’ American Pillars at a great price. They arrived thoughtfully packaged and in great shape. I can’t put them in the ground yet because the area near where they’re going is under construction. I just jumped on the price as soon as I saw it. They’re hanging out potted on my deck for now and they’re gorgeous. I’m really glad I took the chance on purchasing the trees through this company!
