Amazing Facts

Arborvitae tree

A dense, narrow, evergreen shrub or small tree, arborvitae makes a
wonderful privacy screen and windbreak.

The shape of an arborvitae tree varies depending on cultivar. An
American arborvitae tree is full and cone shaped.

The Globe arborvitae
tree is broad and spherical while the Pyramidal arborvitae is a taller,
thinner variety.

Arborvitae can also be pruned into various ornamental hedges or grown
in containers. They are however, a favorite delicacy of deer.

Arborvitaes are hardy trees that require little maintenance and grow
well in part or full sun.

They can be planted at any time of the year, except during summer
drought conditions. Arborvitae trees prefer cooler climates and moist,
alkaline soil, but can adapt to other soil types.

Arborvitae ranges in height from 20-30 feet high / 12 foot spread
depending on species.
