The Size: 40 to 60 ft. tall, 12 to 18 ft. wide
Lightning: "Green Giant" Arborvitae prefers full sun. It will tolerate part of shade and actually thrives in some light afternoon shade in hot summer climates.
The Soil: Able to grow in a range of soils such as poor soil and clay, it does best in moist, fertile, well-drained loams. Avoid wet soil that does not drain well and exposure to spray or salt.
Water & Fertilizer: You should not fertilize the tree in the first year after planting. For the early years after that, enrich the soil with plenty of water and balanced fertilizer; this will promote continuous, vigorous growth. Then, as with more arborvitae, it will not need much or any fertilizer.
Reproduction: Propagate the tree from stem cuttings from July through March. Root cuttings under mist with bottom heat (3000–8000 ppm IBA)
Features of Care: Giant Green Arborvitaes are tolerant of drought, heat, humidity, cold, wind, ice and snow damage, and to many pests including deer.
Difficulties: Fortunately, this variety is more resistant to deer than most arborvitae and it has no major insect or disease issues. Keep an eye out for scale, rots, and bagworm in poorly drained soils.
