Fall Colors of the Green Giants

Green Giant Arborvitae Fall Foliage with Needle Casting, the dropping of last years needles that turn brown. All a part of the normal lifecycle.

Fall is the time of year in the transition zone that we notice some browning on the green giant arborvitae. This is the normal conifer needle cast. It involves the inner leaves/needles of the plant.

Some trees have almost no needle cast and others are more noticeable. The tiny cones of the thuja green giant also are browning and falling off right now and preparing for new growth in the spring.

Fall planting requires less watering and enables the plants to gain firm rooting before the new growth in the spring. We still have time to plant your living fence for privacy screening before the end of the year. Call or email your order today!
