Plant Features

Emerald Green Arborvitae, also known as 'Smaragd', stands out as the quintessential medium-sized privacy tree. Its dense, scale-shaped, emerald-green foliage fans out year-round, providing a lush and vibrant barrier even in winter. Growing into a compact, pyramidal shape, this evergreen reaches heights of 10-15 feet and widths of 3-4 feet, making it perfect for tight spaces, foundations, or as a singular accent. Beyond its beauty, the tree's hardiness is noteworthy - it's resilient to drought, pests, and extreme temperatures. Furthermore, its rapid growth rate of 1-2 feet per year in its initial stages gradually tapers to 6-9 inches annually once established. The Emerald Green's low maintenance nature shines through its self-sustaining stature, thriving merely on rainfall post-establishment, requiring virtually no upkeep. Bred for excellence, this selection yields fewer seeds and guarantees consistent growth without the need for guesswork. For those envisioning a hassle-free, evergreen privacy screen or an eye-catching yard centerpiece, it is the unmatched choice. All of our Emerald Green arborvitae are shipped landscape-ready and, once planted, stand between 12-20 inches tall.
