Green Giant: is a vigorously growing, pyramidal evergreen with rich green color that remains outstanding throughout hardiness range.

Light Requirements: Full sun to shade
Instant Privacy Spacing: May be planted as close together as “5′ centers”, meaning the trunks of each tree are 5’apart.
What to Expect the First Year: As with all newly-planted trees, these need to be watered carefully through the first Spring/ Summer
