Planting & Care

1. Planting: Emerald Green Thujas grow best in full sun, but they can withstand partial shade (afternoon sun is best in this case). And for best results, plant these trees six feet apart to enjoy their pyramid shape or four feet apart for a dense hedge.

When planting Emerald Green Thujas, dig a hole that is just as deep as the root ball and twice as wide. If the top of the root ball is lower than the surrounding soil, remove the tree and fill in part of the hole. Replace the tree and fill in the hole with the same soil you removed. You do not need to add anything to the soil. Mulch around the tree with shredded hardwood mulch. A layer three inches thick, extending three feet, around the tree is ideal.

Water your new tree by counting to 20 while holding the hose near the trunk or give the tree five watering cans full of water.

2. Watering: Water your new tree weekly or twice weekly by holding a hose around it and counting to 20.

After the first month, water just once a week unless it is dry and hot (no rain and temperatures above 80 degrees). If it is hot and dry, water twice a week.

After the first six months, the trees will be established and subsist on rainfall alone.

3. Pruning: The Emerald Green Thuja grows well without pruning. In fact, this is one tree that needs no pruning, other than to remove dead branches. If you do decide to hedge this tree, make sure that when you trim, the bottom of the tree is wider than the top.

4. Fertilizing: This tree does not need extra fertilizer. If the leaves are not the right color, the problem is likely the soil pH. Test the pH and add aluminum sulfate if the pH is too high, and lime if the pH is too low. Normal pH is between 5.5-7.0.

Questions & Answers

Emerald Green Arborvitae Spacing

Plant one every 4 to 5 feet and they quickly create a dense barrier. For example, if you want Emerald Greens spread across an area approximately 50 feet in width, you’ll plant one every 4 to 5 feet. 

Planting the Emerald Green Thuja

Generally, we recommend planting Emerald Green in the spring or fall – as long as the ground isn’t frozen, you’re good to grow.

Dig a hole for each tree that is two to three times as wide as the root ball but just as deep. You don’t need to add anything to the planting hole. Place the tree and fill in around the tree with the same soil you took out when initially digging the hole. Finally, tamp down as you fill to cut back on any air pockets from forming, water the tree, then mulch to conserve moisture in the area.

When Do I Water My Emerald Green Thuja?

For the first two weeks, water your new tree every other day by holding a hose around it for about 20 seconds. If you don’t have a hose, one or two large watering cans will suffice.

After that, switch to watering every three days with the same method mentioned above. 

Once the first month has passed, water once a week unless it is dry and hot (no rain and temperatures above 80 degrees). 

And finally, after the first six months, your trees should be established and won’t need any extra water. Natural rainfall in your area should be sufficient at this stage, provided you aren’t experiencing drought conditions.

How Do I Prune My Emerald Green Thuja?

You don’t have to prune Emerald Greens; however, you can trim once a year to your desired height. We recommend pruning in the fall and trimming with clean shears, making symmetrical cuts at a 45-degree angle.

Left unpruned, Emerald Greens planted in rows can reach as high as 15 to 20 feet. However, most homeowners keep their Emerald Greens trimmed to around 12 feet.

So far ... AMAZING

We've only had them in the ground for a few weeks but they seem healthy. They all arrived safe and sound. Nothing broken. I'm so excited to watch them grow. Shipping was fast, even during COVID.
