Why Forever Goldy Arborvitae Trees?

The Forever Goldy’s natural hue is tinged with light yellow. So, if you're looking for an arborvitae that delivers glowing foliage in the summer and winter, look no further. The Forever Goldy is a beacon of brightness in cold, gloomy weather.

The Forever Goldy lends an interesting touch to traditional borders. The Goldy is a colorful solution to block out neighbors and the sounds and lights of nearby traffic. Fully grown, it will reach 12 feet tall and widens to only 3 feet, so you won’t need a lot of yard space to create a tall living fence along your property line.

It offers light, feathery foliage and easy growth without the clean-up or upkeep. This well-behaved tree doesn’t shed, so you’ll get maximum visual interest, all year round. The arborvitae’s soft foliage and upright, pyramidal stature can stand strong and elegant on your property.

Plus, it couldn't be hardier. The durable Forever Goldy is resistant to drought and cold weather. If you need a tree that can stay healthy without the fuss, season after season, this is the arborvitae for you.

Why is Better

Order soon! These Arborvitaes tend to sell out quickly, especially since they're so hard to find at most nurseries. Don't wait...get your Forever Goldy today!

Planting & Care

1. Planting: This tree does best in full sun to partial shade (about 3 to 6 hours of sunlight daily). It will do better in a somewhat sheltered location.

Once you've selected your location, dig a hole that's large enough to accommodate your tree's root ball, backfill your soil, and mulch around the area. Finally, water to settle your tree's roots.

If you're planting in a container, select a pot that's about twice the size of your tree's shipped container, use organic soil mix, and place in a location with proper sunlight.

2. Watering: For the first couple of years, keep the soil well-watered. Once the roots are established, it can tolerate some degree of drier conditions as long as you have mulched it well.

If you're not sure when to water, simply check your tree's surrounding soil about 3 inches down for dryness.

3. Fertilizing: Use an evergreen tree and shrub fertilizer in spring and follow label instructions.

4. Pruning: This relatively low maintenance tree doesn’t require much pruning, but if necessary for shaping, limit trimming to new growth of the current season. You can remove any dead or damaged branches throughout the year.

GOT IT AND GOT IT IN THE GROUND: Forever Goldie Arborvitae Tree

Oh, I was thinking it would be a little taller than it is, about a foot high. But it is in the ground and seems to already grown an inch or two. I love the color and I know it will be beautiful when it puts on some height!
