When you get to the nursery or garden center where you will buy your arborvitae, pick out the healthiest, most robust plants that have no evidence of disease or insect damage. The potting medium should be moist, but not wet, and the roots should well dispersed in the medium. Arborvitae that have roots growing from the drainage holes or circling the top of the pot are less desirable. Many people choose to buy arbs from a mail order company, which is perfectly acceptable. However, realize that most woody plants purchased from mail order catalogs will be shipped dormant and bare root, that is, without any soil attached to the root system. Such plants may be smaller in size because of the expense of shipping. It is important to plant such material immediately upon arrival. Generally it is best to purchase one-year-old material from mail order companies since this material is more vigorous and will transplant better. The larger material that is offered is often composed of the less vigorous plants held over from previous years. Most large sized arbs are balled and burlaped. Don't buy any arbs bare rooted over 3' tall. Any plant larger should be balled and burlaped. Planting Instructions for our nursery stock
The InstantHedge process involves extensive root-pruning of all our field-grown hedges. Each crop is root-pruned five times before harvesting, resulting in a dense, healthy root mass near the base of the hedge. This also means that when the hedges are harvested, no large roots are being cut. This minimizes the stress on the garden hedges at harvest, which means little to no transplant shock. It also enables us to harvest and ship our garden hedging plants at any time of year.
Also known as "thuja," arborvitae trees are one of the best choices for privacy landscaping. They're fast-growing, hardy, and relatively low-maintenance. Plus, they offer year-round interest with their dense evergreen foliage. The Green Giant arborvitae is a particularly good choice for privacy screening, as it can grow up to 3 or 4 feet per year and reaches heights of 25 feet or more. This tree is deer resistant.
If you have an arborvitae in decline, be sure to determine why it died before replacing it and then buy the largest plant you can find so it catches up to it neighbors as quickly as possible. For help figuring out the problem, contact the OSU Extension Master Gardeners in your county. 041b061a72
