  1. Emerald Green<br>Thuja occidentalis 'emerald green': The Emerald Green Arborvitae is one of the most popular and dependable screening trees for our area. They are often planted in rows to create a ‘Natural’ barrier. The Emerald Green is a dense evergreen that maintains its deep green color all year. Because of its columnar growth habit, and limited spread, the Emerald Green is an appropriate selection for small planting spaces.
  2. Excelsa Cedar<br>Thuja plicata 'excelsa': Cultivars of our native tree, the Western Red Cedar, make excellent screening trees and hedges. The excelsa cedar is known to maintain its density and symmetrical form without reaching such an enormous mature size. Most cedar cultivars are also noted for their moderate to fast growth rates. Cedars do tolerate hedging and shearing to maintain their growth and overall size.
  3. Leyland Cypress<br>Cupressocyparis leylandii: The Leyland Cypress is an excellent choice for a fast growing large screening tree. Its growth rate and mature size is often underestimated when it is young as it can be thin in its early stages. Growing up to three to four feet each year the Leyland Cypress fills in quickly. The Leyland requires little maintenance as long as you have adequate space for the tree at maturity. Leyland Cypress can also be used as a hedge as they do tolerate shearing to control growth and overall size. Shearing to control growth will require long term and regular maintenance.
  4. Watnong CedarThuja plicata Watnong ‘watnong green cedar’: Watnong Green, a cultivar of the Western Red Cedar, is a broad, fast-growing pyramid, 20-25ft high. Superb bright green color year round, tipped with bronze in the winter, the foliage is a little sturdier than the species, but overall has a graceful, fine texture. This is a favorite. Give it deep, well-drained soil, and water regularly--at least until established. Watnong grows well in full sun, but tolerates light shade.
