Hardy Evergreen with Distinct Foliage

Fire Chief Arborvitae, Thuja occidentalis 'Fire Chief', is an evergreen plant that displays distinctive foliage coloration which is reddish at the tips when grown under full sun conditions.

When grown in shaded locations the foliage is more green in coloration. It has a rounded growth habit and good winter hardiness. It can mature to 3'-5' with an equal spread.

The Fire Chief Arborvitae is well suited for providing attractive and colorful ornamentation. It resists sun and winter burning.

Fire Chief Arborvitae provides food and shelter for wildlife. White-tailed deer, snowshoe hares, and porcupines heavily browse the foliage. Easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade.

Somewhat wide range of soil tolerance, but prefers moist, well-drained loams. Intolerant of dry conditions.

The Fire Chief Arborvitae is best in full sun, but generally appreciates some light afternoon shade in hot summer climate.
