What do you do when you want privacy from the neighbors and
traffic, but you can’t afford a 10-foot brick wall? Why, you plant a
green, living wall instead. And the quickest means to achieving
enclosure is with Thuja ‘Green Giant.’ America's choice Privacy
tree! If you need a graceful fast growing evergreen tree, one that
provides complete privacy from prying eyes and noisy traffic, requires
no coddling, is drought tolerant, and gives shelter to wintering birds,
do consider planting a hedge of Thuja Green Giant.
Thuja "Green Giant" (Thuja standishii x plicata "Green Giant") has only been in the world some 40 years yet it already has a good reputation for
towering size and easy maintenance. A hybrid cross between Japanese arborvitae (Thuja standishii) and Western red cedar (Thuja plicata), "Green
Giant" may have some of the longevity genes of its cedar parent that lives to 1,200 years old; but alas, the cultivar is too new to the planet to be
No tree is ever completely maintenance free, but "Green Giant" is very close. The tree requires daily sun to thrive, it accepts most soil conditions
in U.S. Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones 5 though 9, and grows vigorously, up to 48 inches per year. Neither insect pests nor
diseases cause serious trouble to "Green Giant," and it does not require pruning to maintain its conical or pyramid shape. Gardeners using the
plant in a hedge can clip the arborvitae to fit their needs.
Although the tree is undemanding and tolerant, treating it like a garden star can only extend its lifespan. Grow your tree in a sunny site that
receives a little shade in the heat of summer afternoons. Provide water weekly during the year after transplant, and again during the heat of the
growing season. Don't take its soil tolerance as not having a preference: "Green Giant" grows best in fertile, moist, well-drained soil, like its
parent Japanese arborvitae that thrives in USDA zones 5 though 9. You aid the tree by working compost into the soil before planting. It also helps
to mulch with organic material.
