There are a number of immediate benefits to choosing the Thuja occidentalis for your next hedge:
- Makes an excellent privacy screen when planted in a tight row
- Works well with a regular pruning schedule
- Requires little overall maintenance
The American Arborvitae hedge needs adequate water to stay healthy and may need more than a moderate watering schedule if planted in extreme heat. For winter landscapes, American Arborvitae’s dark green foliage can make a nice accent in an otherwise colorless yard and works as a great accompaniment to flowering plants during the rest of the year. For a more compact version of this plant, check out the Emerald green arborvitae hedge. We carry several other types of arborvitae hedges as well, and they are some of our most popular hedge types.
