    Arborvitae Fast Growing Screening Trees

    Highland Hill Farm has been growing arborvitae since the farm has started. The arborvitae is an excellant plant for blocking neighbors without forfitting much of your back yard for the plant to grow on. Most arborvitaes are upright in growth. For example the popular emerald green arborvitae grows only 3 to 4 feet wide and makes an excellant hedge or buffer. It grows to about 15 ft tall. We love to hear from you! All questions will be answered. Call us at 215 651 8329.

    Trimming of Arborvitae

    d to be Trimming of arborvitae is beyond simple. They are called an indeterminate plants which means that arborvitae grow from growing points and not from their buds. These are found at the tips of the arborvitae and are responsible for making the branches grow longer. Removing them will keep the plant from growing as high and will make the plant wider. For best results, only trim the top leader of your arbs. Since arborvitae do not have buds, trim them at time of the year. We typically trim during the winter just because we have more time available.

    Shapes of Arborvitae


    Hetzt Midget
    A very nice example of a globe arborvitae. Globes are rounded plants that do not need much trimming to keep its shape.


    Emerald Green Arborvitae
    Columnar Arborvitaes are great for yards that do not have much room. They can grow tall but not wide which means that they have to be planted closer together to make a wall. The emerald green is an excellent example of columnar plant because they only grow 3 to 4 feet wide.


    Green Giant Arborvitae
    Pyramidal arborvitae becomes thinner as it gets taller. The base should always be wider except if it has been trimmed. They have great shape and can be used with excellent effect in landscapes.

    Roots of Arborvitae

    The roots of arborvitae are considered to be small and fiberous. They are predominately small with many speghetti like and thin roots. These roots are more desirable because when the roots travel under pavement or blocks, they do not "bubble" up disturb it causing sidewalk or foundation problems. The roots are typically with in the top 9 to 12 inches of the ground except in very sandy conditions where they found deeper.

    In general, the arborvitaes like moist well drained soils. They can take the pooper soils of new developments fairly well but try to avoid year round wet soils. If the soils are wet only after rains which is common, then elevate the balls when planting. Also shy away from potted material in those conditions.
