The Thuja Green Giant is a large and dense, pyramidal-shaped evergreen. The arborvitae is fast-growing and reaches a height of 30 ft. to 40 ft. with a 12 ft. to 15 ft. spread, quickly giving you a lush, rich privacy screen. The foliage is lustrous green in the summer and darkens or bronzes slightly in the winter. The tree works nicely as a specimen tree or can be planted with others to create a tall hedge or border. Growing 3 to 5 feet per year, it quickly adds height to your landscape. It is cold hardy in USDA Zones 6-8.

How to Plant
STEP 2) Once you've located the perfect spot, the hole you are digging must be at least double the width and as deep as the root system you are planting.
STEP 3) Remove the plant from the pot and place the root ball in the hole. The top of the root system should be level with the ground. Before placing the tree or shrub in the hole, use your hands to gently break up the root system.
STEP 4) Once the plant is in place, backfill the hole with native soil and any leftover potting material.
STEP 5) Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets.
STEP 6) When finished, water thoroughly.
