Thuja Green Giant Tree Care

Planting: The tree is a large landscape tree and as such, requires a bit of planning before planting. First, measure the area where you would like to plant your hedge or row. You will need the length of the area of planting to estimate the number of trees you need.

When planting, dig a hole for each tree that is 3 times as wide as the root ball but just as deep. You don’t need to add anything to the planting hole. Place the tree, fill in around the tree with the same soil you took out when initially digging the hole. Finally, tamp down as you fill to cut back on any air pockets from forming, water the tree, and then mulch to conserve moisture.

Watering requirement: For the first 2 weeks, water your new Thuja Green Giant tree every other day by holding a hose around it and counting to 20. If you don’t have a hose, two large watering cans full of water will do (smaller trees may only need a light soaking so a single can may suffice).

During the second two weeks, switch to watering every 3 days with the same method mentioned above. After the first month, water once a week unless it is dry and hot (no rain and temperatures above eighty degrees). If it is hot and dry, water twice a week. After the first 6 months, the Thuja Green Giant tree will be established and won’t need any extra water. Your natural rainfall should be sufficient at this stage.

Fertilizer requirement: For optimal growth feed your Thuja ‘Green Giant’ tree with a balance evergreen tree and shrub fertilizer starting in the spring.

Pruning the tree: You won’t have to prune this tree if you are growing it with enough space for it to maintain its naturally graceful pyramid shape. If you’re growing several close together as a hedge, you can shear the plants yearly after the final frost.
