The Emerald Green Thuja is the most popular, medium size privacy screen tree. If you are looking for an evergreen hedge without the extreme height of the Thuja Green Giant or the Leyland Cypress this gorgeous arborvitae is the perfect choice.
The Emerald Green Arborvitae is beautifully shaped with stunning, lush, green foliage that is beyond compare. Emerald Greens add value and beauty to any home, building, or property. Many customers utilize this tree as a low maintenance living fence, but because of its unique flowing and twisting branched foliage the Emerald Green is prized as a single specimen as well. This isn't your average, boring Christmas tree evergreen. The shape is more cylindrical than pyramidal. The dense, feathery foliage swirls and twirls around this plant creating a lovely. natural layered, but clean look that is unparalleled.
If you are seeking a nice specimen tree with some height (but not too much) for the front of your home, plant an Emerald Arborvitae on each side of a window. This creates a softening affect that breaks up the wall and adds character to your home. Under the windows you can plant your choice of shrubs. For tons of blooms, bold color, and rich texture plant knockout roses in the back and drift roses in the front. If you prefer evergreens, try a mix of Gold Mop Cypresses and junipers; this will offer year-round foliage, as well as rich texture and striking color contrast. Emerald Greens are great anchors for the corners of your home as well. Plant just one or groups of three for even more impact. The mature size is 14 feet tall and 4 to 5 feet wide so this tree is great for any size yard. For instant impact start with larger trees. We offer a variety of sizes to suit any budget or landscape plan.
For a privacy hedge, space your new trees about 3 to 4 feet apart on center. To showcase individual Emerald thujas plant at least 6 feet apart.

Emerald Arborvitae trees do need to be watered heavily at time of planting. Be sure not to let your new trees dry out within the first few months before they are established. Water deeply about 2 times per week rather than smaller amounts several times per week. This ensures that the roots grow properly. We recommend watering your trees as soon as they arrive even before you plant them. This will ensure that the roots are moist and ready for planting. Adding 2-3 inches of mulch is a great choice for newly planted Emerald Green Arborvitaes. This will help keep the soil moist during the crucial early period when the roots are acclimating to their new home.

Unpack all of your plants right away! Look for the perfect location. Make sure you are planting in the correct light conditions.
Dig a hole twice the width of the root ball. Position your plant in the hole. Make sure the top of the root ball is slightly higher than the original grade of the bed. Also check to make sure it is straight from all sides.
Fill up hole with water before placing new plant in hole in order to saturate the surrounding soil. Once the water is absorbed place your plant in the hole and water thoroughly.
Mix the potting soil and the soil removed from the hole. Start by backfilling soil around the root ball. Carefully pack in the soil to remove any air pockets. Water plant thoroughly again until the soil will not hold any more water. This will ensure that your new plant will be a success.
Fertilize around your plant with the amount recommended on the package. Our special Fertilizer contains all of the nutrients to keep your plants growing and healthy. Repeat every 3 months.
Finish up by mulching around your new plant. Apply 1-2 inches of mulch around the plant and plant bed. Mulch will help keep the soil moist and keep weeds out.
Keep watered with a hose every 2-3 days for 2 weeks. This is critical for plant survival. In the third week, begin to water as needed depending on the weather. Always check by placing your finger under the mulch to see if the soil is moist.
