Planting Arborvitae

 
 

   Planting arborvitaes is easy, as they generally require no aftercare to thrive, aside from occasional pruning.        Once a suitable site is selected, the hole should be dug large enough for the root system to spread out.            The roots should be only a few inches underneath the surface of the soil, as they require air to grow                properly. Once in place, the plant should be watered.

   Planting arborvitaes should be done in an area of moist, alkaline soil for best results. This is not required,          however, as arborvitaes will grow in dry or acidic soil as well.

   They can be planted just about anywhere that has full to partial sun. Hardy to zones three to seven,                arborvitaes will not thrive in warmer climates.

   Propagation of arborvitaes can be done best by clippings.

   This is generally easier than it is on other plants, as the tree can literally        be torn apart to make hundreds of smaller clippings.

   Planting arborvitae clippings is easy to do, but takes some time before a        mature plant grows

   The clipping should be about four inches of new growth, and should be          placed in a sandy soil.

   After planting arborvitae clippings, a mist of water should be applied for a        few seconds every ten minutes or so.

   More information about planting arborvitaes can be found in a variety of          locations. Internet sites have some helpful tips.

   Local nurseries and garden centers would be able to provide good                  information about planting arborvitaes. There are also several books              written about planting arborvitaes and other trees.
