What are Arborvitaes


   Arborvitaes are conifer, evergreen trees from the cypress family of trees. They are native to the                      northeastern United States and eastern Canada. Arborvitaes come in many different shapes and sizes.

   Arborvitaes have scale like leaves that are soft to the touch, rather than prickly. Arborvitaes prefer colder        climates to warmer ones.

   Arborvitaes grow best in moist soils with an alkaline pH level, but can generally withstand periods of extreme      drought. They are also adaptable to poor soils that are rocky, sterile, dry or wet.

   They can be planted anywhere that has full to partial sun, and require            minimal aftercare.They thrive in zones three to eight. Arborvitae trees            and shrubs will make a great addition to most landscapes.

   Arborvitaes play an important role in the wild.

   Their leaves are one of the most popular evergreens eaten by deer and          other mammals during the winter.

   The dense canopy arborvitaes provide cover for birds and mammals year        round, and will act as a wind break for many of the more delicate plants.

   Arborvitaes come in many different shapes and sizes. Some, like American      arborvitaes, are wide, cone shaped, and can grow to forty feet or higher.

   Others, like the pyramidalis, are thinner, and top off at about twenty-five        feet tall.

   Globe arborvitaes are naturally spherical, and will usually only grow to three    feet in size. Arborvitaes can also be pruned into the shape of hedges, and      make wonderful year round privacy screens.
