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!

I love am in love with this tree and now own ~25 and counting. Makes for a great tree line that doesn't consume significant width spacing. Trees have always arrived in great condition and have only replaced 2 thus far.
Great experience. Delivery as planned. Trees planted and doing well!
They came boxed and in perfect condition. Great service, 2 thumbs up.
Great! These trees arrived late the delivery didn’t show up at out home until Tuesday...tracking showed was to be delivered on Saturday. But they faired better after a drink. We let them acclimate to the sunshine & fresh air for 24 hours. Planted with shrub & tree soil the next day. They looked like they were beginning to yellow a little on the tips the first week but I backed off on the watering and they are looking wonderful and have re-greened back up. We are putting a little fence around them to help to keep deer/rabbits/bugs away. If they make it through to next year we will order more!
The American pillar arborvitae arrived beautifully packaged soil still moist all of the trees look great I planted them according to instruction and they're already growing after just a week in the ground.
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.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately, however we are currently experiencing delays and could take up to 11-14 days from date of purchase. As noted on the website, some items are seasonal, and may only ship in spring or fall. Once your order is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number.
