The Fastest Growing Quality Evergreen

Why Thuja Green Giants?

The Thuja Green Giant quickly gives you a lush, rich privacy screen (3-5 feet per year once established). And it's:

- Drought tolerant
- Disease and insect resistant
- Easy-to-grow and very adaptable

You can block out neighbors while taking very little yard space. Thuja Green Giants grow in a uniform shape and height. You get that classic French Renaissance look without having to prune or shear. In fact, you don't have to do anything to them. They're drought tolerant and have no significant insect or disease problems.

Planting in Rows
There are two popular ways to plant your Thuja Green Giants:

In a Straight Row
In a Staggered Row
Thuja Green Giant Privacy Evergreen Single Row
Thuja Green Giant Privacy Evergreen Staggered Row

How to Get the Height You Want
Follow this spacing chart when planting in a straight row:

Desired Height
Distance Between Trees
20-25 feet tall
5 feet apart
25-30 feet tall
8 feet apart
30-40 feet tall
10 feet apart


So, you'll never have to worry about mixing chemicals or spraying these trees. With proper care, Thujas aren't typically prone to deer or bagworm problems. This is a tough tree. Resists ice and snow damage. Grows in almost any soil, even sandy loam or heavy clays. Prefers direct sunlight, but also does well in partial shade.

The Thuja Green Giant is the perfect fast-growing evergreen for a privacy hedge or windscreen. Plant one every 5 to 6 feet and they quickly create a dense barrier. You can easily trim them once a year to your desired height. Left unpruned, Thuja Green Giants planted in rows can reach as high as 30 to 50 feet. Your Thuja foliage stays soft and thick all year long.

Why Fast-Growing-Trees.com is Better

Some nurseries dig Thujas out of the ground and send them bare-rooted, or 'ball and burlap.' This can leave up to 90% of the roots behind. The tree can lose up to a year of growth while struggling to replace its root system. You also risk losing the tree, since it's less able to absorb vital nutrients and water.

Our Thuja Green Giants are hybrids grown from branch cuttings - not from seed. They need to grow below the ground before they can grow above the ground. Some nurseries sell freshly rooted cuttings, which can take up to a year to reach the size and root mass of our trees.

But you can be assured that when you order from Fast Growing Trees, you are getting well-rooted Thuja Green Giants, ready for explosive growth. And for quickest privacy, we now have a limited supply of large trees available. These larger trees offer more developed branching for ready-made privacy in your landscape.

Order your own Thuja Green Giant before it's gone!

Jolly Green Thujas

We love our Thuja Green Giants. We don’t know much at all about planting trees, but Fastgrowingtrees.com made it easy and gave us the information we needed to make sure our trees thrive. All of them came healthy and green. We decided to even get a few more after we planted the original 64.

Green giants will not let you down

In March 2020 during the pandemic I bought 2 ten packs of tiny thuja green giant trees from fast growing trees. I lined the back of my yard because the pine trees on the other side of the fence were starting to break a little and we wanted something to start growing that could eventually replace them but it wasn’t urgent. I had zero expectations. It was just an experiment. It’s now been four years and I felt like I had to write a review after looking at these pictures. The first 2 pictures are after they just arrived, and I put them in the ground. The third picture is 4 years later. I only lost one of the trees along the way. And it was because I didn’t water it enough because it was in a weird spot and my hose didn’t reach. Otherwise they did great and grew fast!
