About the Green Giant Arborvitae

Get privacy, fast! Transform your landscape into a verdant oasis with our Green Giant Arborvitae, the epitome of natural elegance and privacy. Revered for its stunning beauty and practical functionality, this exquisite evergreen has become a beloved choice among homeowners and landscapers alike.

Standing tall and proud, our Green Giant Arborvitae grows to majestic heights, reaching up to 30-40 feet tall and 10-15 feet wide. Its vigorous growth and dense foliage swiftly create a living, green wall, offering unmatched privacy and tranquility to your outdoor space. These hardy giants maintain their vibrant color, ensuring your landscape remains lush and inviting, no matter the season.

A cross between the Western Redcedar and Japanese arborvitae, the Green Giant was introduced to the U.S. National Arboretum in 1967 by the esteemed D.T. Poulsen nursery of Copenhagen, Denmark.

How to Grow the Green Giant Arborvitae

Thriving in a variety of soil types and climates, this hardy conifer demands minimal upkeep once established. With its natural resistance to pests and diseases, it’s the ideal choice for those seeking beauty without the hassle.

Flourishing at a remarkable pace of 3-5 feet per year once established, the Green Giant offers a swift, uniform growth pattern. Its robust structure and columnar shape make it an ideal choice for privacy screens or ornamental landscaping.

For a compact privacy hedge or security screen, space the trees 5 to 6 feet apart. Alternatively, consider planting them farther apart in small groups or as individual specimens to enhance landscapes and lawns. The ideal spacing may depend on your desired timeframe for achieving full privacy. Closer spacing yields faster results, while wider spacing requires patience but may result in healthier, less crowded trees in the long run.

Beyond property definition and noise reduction, the Green Giant emits a delightful fragrance, making it an ideal choice for defining landscapes, providing windbreaks, and creating private outdoor retreats.
