'Green Giant' is a hybrid cultivar of Thuja plicata, western redcedar, and Thuja standishii, Japanese arborvitae, and has the best of both cultivars in one form: ‘Green Giant’ has a low-branching, dense, upright habit, resembling the quintessential Christmas tree shape. This arborvitae cultivar produces green sprays of small, glossy, scale-like needles that remain evergreen and attractive through the winter. 'Green Giant' does best in a moist, full-sun location with some light shade in the afternoon and tolerates a wide range of soil conditions.

In these optimal conditions, 'Green Giant' can grow 3 to 4 feet per year up to a mature height of 40-60' tall with a spread of 12-18'. Most commonly used as a specimen tree for the lawn or as a foundation plant, Thuja x 'Green Giant' can also be cultivated in groups in lawns or borders; young trees can be easily pruned as a hedge or privacy screen.

Marylanders Plant Trees

From the Maryland Department of Natural Resources:

"We launched Marylanders Plant Trees in 2009 to encourage citizens and organizations to partner with the State to plant new trees. Today, citizens can still take advantage of our coupon program to receive $25 off the purchase of a native tree at 86 participating nurseries across the State. The State cost of $20 per coupon is funded through a settlement from a major power generator for Clean Air Act violations, in partnership with the Office of the Attorney General, and Maryland’s participating tree vendors are generously absorbing the remaining $5.

Trees must be planted in the state of Maryland to qualify for $25 off coupon.
Wholesale customers do not qualify.
