Green Giant Arborvitae Detail

The Green Giant will best achieve a full, beautiful” Living Fence” if grown in a minimum of 6 hours of direct sun a day.  It is a sun loving evergreen but will survive in partial shade.  However, after about three years, it will start to thin out and not provide you the privacy you desire.  You may see some Green Giants that are growing under the shade canopy of tall deciduous trees and seem to provide a screen.  They were probably planted when the deciduous trees were smaller and their canopy had not yet extended over the Green Giants to shade them.  Eventually, they will thin out as the shade canopy increases and prevents access to direct sun.

This is an exceptional landscape tree for use as a screen, hedge, windbreak, or single specimen. It is tolerant of a
wide variety of soils, but prefers moist, well-drained soil. It is wind resistant once established and withstands heavy ice or snow loads. Plant 5′-6′ apart for very fast screen. Zones 5-7. In 1967, a single plant reputed to be Thuja (standishii x plicata) was received from D.T. Poulsen, Kvistgaard, Denmark, and planted at the U.S. National Arboretum. This plant exhibited exceptional landscape quality and propagations were distributed. In the distribution process, the name and identity of this clone became confused with that of another arborvitae from the same source, T. occidentalis ‘Giganteoides’. The identity of the exceptional clone as the T. (standishii x plicata) hybrid was resolved by Susan Martin, USNA, Kim Trip, New York Botanic Garden, and Robert Marquard, Holden Arboretum, through extensive records searches, nursery inspections, and isozyme analysis. The name Thuja ‘Green Giant’ was selected to identify and promote this clone. T. standishi and T. plicata has been named as the cultivar Thuja ‘Green Giant’.
