Instant Privacy Trees

Giant Arborvitae 'Virescens' 

Thuja plicata "virescens"

 

Mature Virescens Cedar

 

       Giant Arborvitae "Virescens" is an "intermediate" screening tree--most of its screening is in the lower half (see photo).  Not as small and cylindrical as the "Emerald Green" Arborvitae, but also not as wide and tall as the Excelsa Cedar or the Leyland Cypress.  The Giant Arborvitae "Virescens" are fast-growing and can tolerate wetter soil.

        Because these Giant Arborvitae "Virescens" are such big trees, our customers usually have us deliver and plant them.  We deliver and plant trees throughout Washington:  Seattle, the "East Side", Bellingham, Vancouver (WA), east-of-the-mountains, etc.  Contact us for free estimates: info@NurseryTrees.com  or (425) 343-2650.

 

ATTRIBUTES       

Foliage:   Evergreen               

Mature Height:    20-25  ft.                 

Mature Width:     10-12 ft.   It has a "tear drop" shape, as in photo above.

Sunlight:  full sun; sun/partial shade

Soil:.  Wet soil tolerant.     

Growth Rate:  Medium/Fast, up to 2' a year after established, depending on growing conditions.       

"Instant Privacy" Use:  Fast-growing, larger barrier.  Avoid power lines, plan for growth.

"Instant Privacy" Spacing:  Usually planted on "4, 6 or 8' centers", meaning the trunks of each tree are 4', 6' or 8' apart.  So if you're trying to cover 40' with trees on 8' centers, you'd need 6 trees (the first one at "0" ft. on one end, and then one every 8' after that).  Some people want them even closer than that in order to maximize the 'Instant Privacy", while others will put them wider in order to cut down on the cost.  Also look at staggering two rows if you have the room--maybe 10' centers, and then a row behind that fills in the spaces--this is good for the trees as it gives them more room, but it takes up more space in your yard. 

What to Expect the First Year:  As with all newly-planted trees, these need to be watered carefully through the first Spring/Summer--see our "Care of Your Trees" section for more details.  Not as much growth the first year because the tree is putting its efforts into its root system.  Some small branches that were broken during installation will turn brown (cut them off or just leave them and they will fall off).  

Comments:  A good choice if you simply want a bigger Emerald Green Arborvitae.  Maintains its green color all year.  Growing in popularity as a substitute for Leyland Cypress.  Literature says it is "deer resistant".

"I am really pleased with your work.  You saved me several thousand dollars, steered me away from trees that wouldn't work, provided healthy and beautiful trees, did a great job planting them, and did everything on time and on schedule.  You can quote me."                                                                          Jo, Vashon Island

"Our privacy bank of trees has done nothing but grow well into maturity.  Our back yard and deck area is totally private and the 10 trees your team planted [in 2005] are rich, leathery and dark green.  We remark on them every day it seems.  Please include me in any of your "Testimonials" as you would be hard pressed to find a more satisfied customer."                                                                                                                  Jim, Port Orchard

"For quality vs. value, your trees are the best landscape purchase I’ve ever made."    Jeff, Seattle

                                                                                                                                                  

"Michael, I just wanted to pass along a note to tell you how thrilled I am with the trees.  The effect they have brought to our new courtyard in the front of our home here in Seattle has exceeded my expectations!"                                                                Chip Hanauer, Hydroplane Driver--Click Here to see his project.  

"I work in customer service so I know good service when I experience it and you have my top rating.  I would definitely recommend you to anyone who needs new landscaping.  Thanks again.”                    Carol, Camano Island

"By the way, the trees were a great privacy feature when we sold the last house!  We now have a much larger space . . "                                                                                                   Katherine, Fall City

“My compliments to your crew.  We’ve had a lot of contractors working on our house recently and we’ve seen the entire range; and your guys were excellent. The trees make things look so much better—I started smiling as soon as I saw them going in."                                                                                    Holly, Queen Anne

"You guys are the best nursery I've ever done business with! And I have dealt with a few. You did what you said you would, on time with attention to detail rarely found. From the beginning of the quote process all the way through to the last detail you made it easy. And you work to ensure that the trees will thrive after planting with detailed advice, a complementary irrigation system, and a website filled with useful information. Most nurseries will just dump off the goods and tell you best of luck, put some water on them. You provide a quality product that sets you apart. Your crew was friendly, polite and operated as a well organized team. I would recommend you without hesitation! Thanks for doing a great job!”                                                                                                   Ryan, Buckley

"We can not believe how beautiful your trees are.  The privacy is unbelievable. If you ever need a testimonial let us know.   Our yard is perfect!  We sit there and say "my oh my”!               Suzanne, Tacoma 

"I don't think I've ever been as happy with something I've purchased."                           Sarah, Sammamish
