Tall and Elegant Privacy Tree

This is the classic American Arborvitae, Thuja occidentalis 'American'. It is used in every state as a landscape basic. Does that mean that it is overused or boring? No way! It is a classic for a reason. This evergreen requires practically no maintenance, grows relatively quickly and maintains its beautiful pyramidal shape and fluffy texture throughout its life.

Several planted 10 feet apart make a living privacy wall. Use a couple flanking an entryway or to frame the sides of the house. One at the back of a shrub border makes an outstanding specimen tree.

It blends well in an evergreen bed and becomes the backbone of a home’s foundation plantings. In addition, once it’s settled in it is highly drought resistant and can stand considerable heat. This arborvitae can grow taller than 25 feet and wider than10 feet. It is a slow grower, though, so give it some time to reach its mature height.

Like a Buckingham Palace guard, the American Arborvitae stands straight and tall wherever you plant it. And just like those guards, an arborvitae purchased from Nature Hills Nursery won’t let you down. Get yours today. Buy American!
