Emerald Green Arborvitae
Emerald Green Arborvitae Image

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.

If planted correctly, Emerald Greens will form a low maintenance solid hedge. The dense and columnar growth habit of Emerald Greens means that they require little maintenance and no pruning. However, Emeralds can easily be sheared back to limit their spread and the tops can be trimmed to create uniform heights. Emerald Greens are often planted on two-foot centers. As with all Big Trees Inc. stock, our Emerald Greens are field grown and are balled and burlapped. Field grown stock is known to be fuller and healthier than container grown stock.

Scientific Name:Thuja occidentalis ’emerald green’

Grand Fir
Grand Fir Image

The grand fir is one of the tallest firs, reaching heights of 300 feet. It is easily distinguished from other Pacific Northwest firs by its sprays of lustrous needles in two distinct rows. They are usually horizontally spread so that both the upper and lower sides of the branches are clearly visible. The needles are 1 to 1 1/2 inches long with glossy dark green tops and two highly visible white lines of stomata on the undersides.

The pollen strobili are yellowish and the cones are yellowish-green to green, cylindrical, erect, 2 to 4 inches long, occur high in the crowns and dissipate in the fall to release their seeds.

The bark is grayish-brown, usually with white mottles, smooth with resin blisters when young, becoming rigid and then scaly with age. Like most other true firs, it is thinned barked and therefore very sensitive to fire. Control of fires in the drier southern parts of the northwest has allowed a widespread increase of grand fir over the last 50 years.

Scientific Name:Grand Fir, ‘abies grandis’

Scientific Name:Pinus flexilis ‘Joe Burke – Limber’ Pine
Vanderwolf Pine
Vanderwolf Pine Image

The ‘Vanderwolf’ Pine has proven itself a good conifer choice for a hot, dry spot; that won’t get too large and has soft, two-toned needles.  This western North American native Pine can tolerate our dry, hot summers and wet winters.  Well draining soil, including dry, rocky hillsides, will help it tolerate those conditions even better.  We have especially been attracted to it because it doesn’t have the scratchy quality of most conifers, you can get close to it and enjoy the blue and green needles.  The ‘Vanderwolf’ has a more open habit than some other sheared looking conifers when young but gets denser with age and can be used as an effective screen, a specimen position, or looks great in groups of three.  ‘Vanderwolf’ is more pyramidal than the species- Pinus flexilis.  It is difficult to pin down a mature size on the ‘Vanderwolf’ but it is slower growing so it is useful in smaller spaces.  It can get 20-25′ tall and 10-15′ wide but it seems to get taller more quickly than it gets wide.   Like most pines, it only needs occasional watering once established and this variety is more disease and pest resistant than some other pine species.   Also like most pines, it is deer resistant.

Scientific Name:Pinus flexilis ‘Vanderwolf’ Pine
Oregon Green Black Pine
