Why the Green Giant Arborvitae Big?
Want to block views into your yard in a hurry? Green Giant Arborvitae is the answer. A row of these handsome, easy, fast-growing evergreen trees planted along your property line will let you enjoy your own yard in privacy, and they'll be quick about it! Green Giant also makes a fine accent tree to provide structure and greenery all year-round to the landscape beds around your home, and it looks especially festive strung with Christmas lights. This tree requires hardly any pruning, but if you do trim it, you'll appreciate its soft, non-prickly foliage and its fresh Cedar scent. This one's an all-around people pleaser!
Arborvitae means "Tree of Life"; the Vitamin C in the needles of the Eastern species saved early explorers from succumbing to scurvy (we'll stick to orange juice). This variety is a hybrid between a Western species and one from Japan. It was first grown at the Poulsen family nursery in Denmark (yes, the one that brought us "Emerald Green" too) in 1937, and then shared with the National Arboretum in Washington, D.C. in 1967. Once the public found out about it (which didn't happen until the late 1990s), they loved it.
How to use in the landscape?
Ho-Ho-Ho! Use this Arborvitae as a hedge and not even the "jolly" Green Giant could see through it! (Just think, no more pesky neighbors!) A hardy evergreen that is handsome and fast-growing, no wonder it is a Gold Medal Plant Award Winner from the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society for its outstanding performance, hardiness, and eye-appeal.

How To Plant
Arborvitaes are fast growing and the different varieties give you many reasons to add a few to your landscape. Green varieties like full sun, but tolerate light shade as well. Arborvitaes prefer moist soil as long as it is well-drained, meaning it’s not consistently wet. Pests don’t seem to be of any concern for Arborvitaes. Green Giant Arborvitae is fast growing, producing two to three feet of new growth a year. It is considered the “Leyland Cypress for the north.” While Leylands and Green Giants are similar in appearance and growth rate, the Green Giant withstands colder climates.
How To Water
They require keeping the soil moist (not too wet) after initial planting and be sure to water consistently for the first growing season. Once established, they are more tolerant of drought conditions, reducing your hand-watering responsibilities.
How To Fertilize
Apply Bower & Branch Elements fertilizer once a year to give your Arborvitae a little kick heading into the growing season. Fertilizer can be applied in late fall or early spring.
How To Prune
Arbs rarely need shearing but if a haircut would be beneficial, Green Giant Arbs, being such fast growers, can be sheared annually, preferably in March.

How Does Shipping Work?
Bower & Branch Trees, the real BIG trees, don’t fit in a box! Our large trees require expert delivery and care, that means our large trees are shipped on Bower & Branch trucks. We are the only ones who know how to ship our big and bigger trees and plants with tender loving care.
We deliver your trees and plants directly to your driveway or curbside! Ask Bower & Branch about planting services and rates – we'd be happy to assist in installation.
*Big trees, Size XL (A) and bigger, will take approximately 2 to 4 weeks days to be delivered. - Sizes large (AA) and smaller (Treelings) will be shipped directly to your home by a local common carrier in a plant-safe box.
How Does Sizing Work?
The size of our trees have nothing to do with the container size like you may find elsewhere–big doesn't mean just height - it’s also vigor, age, and overall health.. Other online retailers are going to tell you that a plant is a seven gallon, that means nothing to your tree or plant (or you.)
Our trees for sale online are graded on large, x-large, and even bigger sizes. This is because our trees are sized by their age—the higher the letter, the more mature the tree. The age determines the trees’ overall height, size of the trunk and the overall branch density.
All of these characteristics are what you should be looking for when choosing a tree for immediate impact and instant curb appeal. Our extra-large tree and plant sizes are sure to wow you and your neighbors!
