These Emerald Greens are 3-4' and starting to fill out well. These plants transplant easily. Arbs have masses of small fiberous roots which allows them to transplant at most times of the year. The Emerald Green has the best year round color, but is narrow in form. In real dry years this plant does not survive as well as the more open arbs such as the American, Techny, Nigra, and Elegantissma. This variety, because its foliage is more dense than other varieties, is less tolerant than more open cultivars. In an urban area with deer problems, this variety will be consumed before the next season. We have in stock and ready to pickup these arbs from seedlings (6-10") to 6-8' trees.
This is an Elegantissima arborvitae hedge that we have used to buffer the street in front of our home. Note the strenght of this plant even with a heavy snow load. The only problem that this hedge has is salt spray from the road. Its a real sound barrier to a busy road which is only 18' from our door. The hedge is 15-18' high and only 4' wide. We have these arbs form 2-3' to 6-8' B&B.
This past spring my neighbor noticed that our arbs have produced mini-like pinecone looking nuggets, which are bronze in color, all over its branches. Some of them dried up and fell off, but most remained. He asked me if they could be lacking acid. He insisted that this was not the normal. He could easily see that there is plenty of new growth. He is worrying needlessly. The fruiting bodies are an indication of the plant�s maturity. Some are more prolific at producing than others. As long as the plants are maintaining their rich full green color there is nothing to worry about.
Eastern Redcedar (Juniperus virginiana)
Cedars serve as wind breaks, and are good trees to help with erosion control. Red Cedars are really in the Juniper Family and are related to Arborvitae and False Cypress, and are representative of the many landscape Junipers. Most full grown Cedars you find will be from 30-35 feet tall and with diameter of 15 feet. The best examples of full grown cedars are usually found in cemetarys. Here they are in the open and the grounds are maintained around them, they grow to exhibit their full form and devolpment. Red Cedars are a rugged plant. Cedars can tolerate fertile, sterile, rocky, sandy, clay, dry, or moist but well drained places. This plant likes to be neglected and will grow under harsh conditions including smog, reflected light and intense heat in urban locations.
