Product Description

Space-Saving Evergreen Grows Just 12 Feet Tall!

An easy-to-grow evergreen that shines: the Emerald Green Thuja is a backyard mainstay. And it matures at a perfect size that's ideal for tight spaces. What else makes this Thuja a prime pick?

• It resists ice and snow damage
• It's low maintenance and drought tolerant
• It adapts to many soils and climates

The Emerald Green Thuja thrives in any yard, from Minnesota down to southern Georgia. There's no need for pruning or shearing to get a full, robust tree. Your Emerald Green is an all-natural beauty that's well-suited to partial shade or full sun, so it's highly versatile and adaptable.

And if you're looking for just the right density, this natural privacy fence fits the bill. You'll love the fast-growing beauty of the Emerald Green Thuja, with its soft, feathery foliage staying deep green throughout the year. Few insects, pests, or diseases attack the hardy Emerald Green, making it even more desirable.

It's well-suited to tight spaces. The Emerald Green Thuja's tall, columnar shape is made for smaller yards and looks great along the sides of your home, especially at the corners where height is needed to frame the structure professionally.

Plus, it's the perfect plant to increase property value. Your trees will have well-developed root systems, so they'll mature quickly. That means instant privacy in your landscape, boosting your home's value! Low-maintenance yet lush and luxuriant - the Emerald Green Thuja has it all. Order yours today!

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Emerald Green Thujas grow best in full sun, but they can withstand partial shade (afternoon sun is best in this case). And for best results, plant these trees six feet apart to enjoy their pyramid shape or four feet apart for a dense hedge.

When planting Emerald Green Thujas, dig a hole that is just as deep as the root ball and twice as wide. If the top of the root ball is lower than the surrounding soil, remove the tree and fill in part of the hole. Replace the tree and fill in the hole with the same soil you removed. You do not need to add anything to the soil. Mulch around the tree with shredded hardwood mulch. A layer three inches thick, extending three feet, around the tree is ideal.

Water your new tree by counting to 20 while holding the hose near the trunk or give the tree five watering cans full of water.

2. Watering: Water your new tree weekly or twice weekly by holding a hose around it and counting to 20.

After the first month, water just once a week unless it is dry and hot (no rain and temperatures above 80 degrees). If it is hot and dry, water twice a week.

After the first six months, the trees will be established and subsist on rainfall alone.

3. Pruning: The Emerald Green Thuja grows well without pruning. In fact, this is one tree that needs no pruning, other than to remove dead branches. If you do decide to hedge this tree, make sure that when you trim, the bottom of the tree is wider than the top.

4. Fertilizing: Support growth by using an all-purpose evergreen tree and shrub fertilizer starting in the Spring.
