BEST Selling Fast Growing Evergreen

The Green Giant Arborvitae (Thuja plicata 'Green Giant' – sometimes called Western Red Cedar) has become one of the most desired landscape trees in the US, and for good reason. With a growth rate of 3-5 feet a year this has one of the fastest growth rates of any Arborvitae available for sale.

Create a Fast Growing Living Privacy Screen!
Cloaked in thick, soft, dark green foliage from top to bottom the Green Giant Arborvitae makes an almost instant privacy screen. Often used in commercial settings to block undesirable views, imagine what it will do for you to block nosy neighbors!

This is a Very Hardy Native Tree
Arborvitae is Latin for “tree of life”, which attests to the hardy nature of this evergreen tree. You won’t have to worry about it surviving ice storms or heavy snow. Birds love it, but most insects don’t, and it is deer resistant, especially when mature. It grows well in most soils, and even during dry periods it’s incredibly fast-growing.

Super Height, Super Fast!
As its common name implies, this is a “giant” Arborvitae, growing up to 60 feet high with a 20 foot spread. The sprays of foliage begin at the base of the Arborvitae and extend slightly upward along the entire tree. The vibrant green coloring stays true all year, not even fading during the cold winter months. Spacing them at 15’ apart ensures a super thick screen very quickly.

Great Along Your Property Line or Even as a Specimen.
Although stunning in rows, the Green Giant Arborvitae can also be planted alone as a sentinel in your yard or plant them in groups to form a living frame highlighting a special part of your landscape. They’re also a beautiful living wall shielding you from unwanted views, noise and wind.

This is a great tree at a great price. Don’t miss ordering yours from Nature Hills today!
