Giant Arborvitae

The scientific name is Thuja Plicata. The Giant Arborvitae is like a big hedge. It is a very fast growing tree. Once it takes hold, it will provide a privacy screen in a few short years. The interesting thing about the giant arborvitae is that it can be shaped and sheared like a hedge. Most evergreen trees cannot be sheared, but the giant arborvitae is the exception.

The giant arborvitae grows up to two feet per year, but can be stimulated to grow more by pruning just as many of the other fast growing shade trees can.

The Giant Arborvitae grows in zones 5 through 7. It has a pyramid shape and can grow up to 60 feet tall with a 12 to 20 foot spread. Being an evergreen, it maintains its deep green color all year long

Giant ArborvitaeUses for the Giant Arborvitae

The Giant Arborvitae is most commonly used as a large hedge, but with its giant size, it can be planted on its own as a focal point in the landscape.
