The Green Giant Arborvitae (Thuja standishii x plicata 'Green Giant') is also called Western Red Cedar. This has become one of the most desired landscape trees in the US, and for good reason. With a rapid growth rate (once tree becomes established), this tree has one of the fastest growth rates of any Arborvitae available for sale.
As its common name implies, this is a "giant" Arborvitae that will grow twice as many feet tall as other Thuja varieties. It's triangular shape provides a wonderfully strong accent in the landscape.
Feathery sprays of foliage begin at the base of the Arborvitae and extend slightly upward along the entire tree. The vibrant green coloring stays true all year, not even fading during the cold winter months.
Native to North America, this fast-growing evergreen tree features good form with beautiful fragrant foliage all along the entire length of the trunk. You'll love how it will hide messy views and give you a sense of natural privacy.
