Emerald Green Arborvitae
The Emerald Green Arborvitae is the go-to tree. Easy to grow and sized perfectly, these hedge trees are ideal for tight areas. And their shimmering emerald color and disease resistance make them extremely popular.
Arborvitaes are exceptional performers, adaptable to a variety of soil conditions and weather extremes. That means you won’t have to deal with ugly browning, even in the coldest of winters, or unattractive dead spots and holes.

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).
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.
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.
