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.
