American Pillar Arborvitae is the New Favorite Tree for Hedges!
When you plant the American Pillar Arborvitae, expect to have a hedge within 3 years. This fast growing evergreen tree reaches up to 25 to 30 feet in height with its narrow shape.
Plant these fast growing arborvitae with 2 1/2 to 3 foot spacing. Allow them to establish for the first year. Fertilize the following spring and voila! They kick off growing to the speed of up to 3 to 4 feet per year until they reach maturity in the 25 foot tall range and up to 4 foot in width.
Available in easy to plant 2 quart containers, this size is easy to plant and easy to care for. Less water is needed than large container grown trees.
This smaller sized evergreen tree is a game changer for homeowners who are in need of a faster way to get a privacy hedge without the high cost of buying considerably larger plants for a rapid fill-in.
Besides being expensive, larger growing evergreen trees have more of a risk factor. Unless your landscaper sends someone to properly water them for the first few weeks after planting, the survival rate tends to lessen. Additionally, larger container grown trees tend to stagnate for a longer a period of time before their root system begins to expand and the trees to grow.
Planting smaller 2 quart container grown plants require less care, less water and will kick into expanding their root system and growing much faster, quite possibly bypassing the larger container grown trees within 2 to 3 years.
The American Pillar Arborvitae is a game changer for the impatient homeowner. This tree native is to North America and hardy in zones 3 to 8.
