Planting instructions

Thuja ‘Green Giants’ are an attractive tree that can be planted as a solitary plant, but are most commonly used to form a screen between property lines, or to create a barrier against wind, ice, or drifting snow. Although the need often dictates site selection, it is important that the trees be planted in well-draining soil, and ideally in a spot that gets a minimum of six to eight hours of direct sunlight. It is most appropriate for planting in USDA hardiness zones 5-9. If planted in warmer climates, the tree will require more shade to survive.

The tree’s rapid growth requires spacing of at least 10 feet apart from one another and a minimum of six to eight feet away from any structure or driveway. Trees can be planted year round, though it is best done in spring to allow the roots an entire growing season to establish themselves before winter. Soil around the root ball should be moistened before removing a new tree from its container for placement into a hole. The hole should be twice as wide as that of the plant’s pot and a few inches deeper, with a small mound of dirt at the center on which the root ball should be placed. Fill with loose soil to allow drainage, making sure to tamp down to ensure a solid fill around the roots.

To guarantee that the new planting’s roots get adequate water in its first days, build a five-inch mound encircling its root zone to hold water in and allow it to sink straight down rather than running off. A layer of mulch over this zone will also help to ensure the health of a new planting.

Watering and nutrients

The Thuja ‘Green Giant’ requires a significant amount of water, especially during the hot months of summer. Placing a thick layer of mulch around the tree’s base will help to retain moisture and insulate against extreme temperatures. Water young Thuja trees weekly unless it rains, giving the trees about an inch of water a week. Mature trees only need supplemental watering when you are experiencing very dry conditions. Watering can be cut back to twice a month during the winter. Both underwatering and overwatering can easily kill a Thuja ‘Green Giant’. Indications of insufficient water include needle tips turning brown and yellow foliage, while overwatering results in discolored, drooping branches.

Like most evergreens, the Thuja ‘Green Giant’ prefers an acidic soil. Though the Thuja ‘Green Giant’ does not require fertilizer, its growth and greenery will benefit from a slow-release formula once or twice a year, especially one that contains a high percentage of nitrogen (10-8-6). The best time to feed the plant is in early spring after the last frost or in early fall.

Propagation

Home gardeners that are interested in propagating their Thuja ‘Green Giant’ will find it surprisingly easy. Propagation is best done in the summer. Start by preparing a six-inch pot with moistened horticultural sand, then take a six- to nine-inch cutting from the tip of a healthy branch that has new growth at the tip and mature bark at its base. Make sure that you cut with clean, sharp sheers at a 45-degree angle, then clear off any foliage growing at the bottom half of the clipping and paint the base with rooting powder. Poke a hole into the moistened sand in the six-inch pot and insert the powder-coated end into the hole, pressing the sand to ensure that the cutting is supported and able to stand up straight.

Place the pot in an area with direct sun and protected from wind and provide it with plenty of humidity and moisture. In about six weeks the plant will have begun rooting, at which point it can be transplanted into a one-gallon container filled with potting soil. Keep partially shaded until ready to plant in the spring.

Pruning

Thuja ‘Green Giants’ require no pruning other than for aesthetic reasons. The plant will grow three to five feet in height every year if left alone, though you can encourage it to grow wider and thicker with light pruning.

Pests, diseases, and animals

Though the Thuja ‘Green Giant’ is easy to grow and considered largely disease-free, it can be attacked by bagworms, which will eat the foliage and slow the tree’s growth. The best way to address these pests on a Thuja is simply to remove them and clip away any foliage that has been impacted by their presence. If you can’t reach the cocoons, spray with insecticide such as Bacillus thuringiensis or spinosad. Be sure to review and follow instructions carefully on the product label.

Thuja ‘Green Giants’ are also vulnerable to scale insects, which are tiny white bugs that leave a liquid that causes mold and mildew to form. Scale will require treatment with an insecticide.

Although Thuja ‘Green Giants’ are disease-resistant, they’re prone to rot problems if overwatered or planted in an area with poor drainage. Root rot appears in two ways: either as mildew on leaves or branches, or as dropping leaves as though it is thirsty even though it has been well watered. You can remove impacted leaves and branches at the mildew point, and the tree should be provided less water. If the leaves are dropping off, it is a sign that the roots have rotted to the point that they are unable to absorb moisture, and the plant is likely unsalvageable.

FAQs

Have a row of Thuja ‘Green Giants’ and one has turned brown. What do I do?

If a single Thuja ‘Green Giant’ in a row of healthy plants dies, it is generally a sign of root rot. This sometimes happens in just one section of the tree, which is an indication that only one root has died, but eventually they all will. Unfortunately, the soil in the area can retain the fungus that causes the rot, and that can impact a replacement plant. You can try to plant a new tree, which will grow quickly if it remains healthy.

Is the Thuja Green Giant a good tree for areas with heavy deer populations?

Unlike many other evergreens and arborvitae, deer do not appear to graze on the Thuja Green Giant, though younger trees may still be appealing to them. If you find that deer are nibbling on your new plantings, apply a deer repellant spray or erect temporary fencing to protect your trees.

I planted my 29 shrubs 2 days after receiving. They arrived well & intact, 2 are very small & Im hoping they all survive. Planted as per instructions, mulched & current schedule is every other day 20 sec water for each. So far, I am happy but is too soon to tell if will root & grow.

Trees arrived on time and packaged well. I ordered 1-2 foot trees and they must be measured from the longest root cause they are small. However all trees were in good shape and are growing. Should've bought taller trees

The trees were a bit skimpy in width for the price paid but they were as tall as they advertised. The shipping was lightning fast. If you need a tree that you can't get in your area, then I definitely recommend.

Love these, all but 5 of the 40 we bought were well packed. The 5, when taken out barely had a rootball and barely any dirt surrounding the roots. Hopefully they will take hold in the ground and establish.

ratingGreat customer service and product!

My shipment was delayed, due to Fed Ex. I called customer service twice, concerned about what to do, and what condition my plants may arrive in. They assured me that the plants should be fine, but also reminded me of the warranty. When the trees did show up, they were beautiful and vibrant, packed neatly. They were small 1' trees, and weren't all standing straight, but I used Velcro ties to prop them up with stakes. I'm excited and hopeful that these trees will work to provide a screen for me.

Our trees arrived on time and in good condition except one. We still planted it according to the directions that said trees could look a little weak due to shipping. However after a week or so it's looking like this tree won't make it. Other than that we're happy with our purchase.

ratingEight out of 10 isn't too bad .

Overall experience was good. Packing was good except for the fact that two of the Seedlings when Packed were bent at about a 70 degree angle . When I planted these two I put a stick next to them to hold them up straight, but they look as if they are not going to make it. They have turned brown at the bottom and it seems to be working it's way up. The other eight are a bright green, standing straight, and looking good.

ratingHoping for fast growing cedar

These arrived healthy and easy to plant, some of the containers were broken, some of the plants seems to be mostly root as the dirt had broken free - however, they seemed quite happy and I watered them promptly. About a week in the ground now and they show no signs of stress.

ratingLook good so far

Would give 5 starts but when they say 1-2ft expect more of just 1ft. I guess I was just expecting a little taller but overall the condition of the trees were great and easy to plant

Overall very satisfied with the online ordering process, delivery time, packaging and quality of the trees. All are doing well now after 1 month since planting, except for 1 tree, as is turning brown and not sure will make it

I ordered three green giants. Two were not in good shape so I wrote to them. They sent me beautiful replacements immediately. I am really happy, great customer service

ratingExcellent condition, lack of directions

The trees came in packaged beautifully and safely, however, I am disappointed that there weren't further instructions with the purchase.

So happy so far with these little guys. They were starting to turn yellow so we cut back on watering & hoping they will be good to go. Excited to watch them grow

ratingHealthy plants

Getting the plants were delayed a week but that has not been typical. I usually get them within the time they estimate. Covid slowed the shipping. They were still in great condition and planted wonderfully.

ratingToo soon to tell

Trees were packaged with care. A couple of them had pretty severe bends in the trunks so i braces them to develop a more upright pattern. They are beginning to show a little bit of yellow but hopefully they catch o quick!

Only bought the small ones, but so far they seem very hearty - even in the hot Texas sun!

So far so good! We purchased (3) 3-4' thuja green giants and they came quickly and packaged nicely. Two were barely over 4 ft and one just below. We planted them about a week after they came. We followed the directions keeping them shaded and watered until we planted them. It's now been nearly a month or so and all are doing quite well. We are very pleased. We just wished the price would have been much less. Kind of spendy because we needed 18 more trees to do a solid hedge in our backyard. We ended up purchasing those 18 else where for nearly half the price.
