'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.
