Green Giant Arborvitaes have become one of the most highly sought-after privacy screening trees due to their rapid rate of growth and high resistance to deer browsing.
Growing at rates of 2-4 Ft per year, Green Giants are a great choice for either privacy screens or wind-breaks. Green Giant Arborvitae are extremely cold-hardy and perform very well throughout the Northeast, especially Long Island. They are uniform growers and do well in hedge-form or individually planted. They prefer full-sun but can handle part-sun conditions as well.
Green Giants need regular watering and fertilization. If provided with both, you will have a deer-proof, cold-hardy green wall in no time!

Heavy or 'Hvy' trees/shrubs/arborvitae is the distinction between the fullness and width of the plant. Heavy plants have been trimmed to promote the growth of the plant to be full and/or wider then the non-heavy plant.
We ship two ways. One is "Local Delivery". That means one, or more, of our crew members personally delivers your order in a Bay Gardens truck or van to your home. This option is only available in certain zip codes throughout NY, NJ & CT.
The other method is "Common Carrier Shipping". Only certain plants can be sent this way. Usually ones that are under 4 feet tall. When we ship this way, one of our crew members boxes up your order and then sends it to your home via UPS or FedEx.
For more information on our shipping methods, browse our delivery pages in the "ABOUT" tab above.
Plants with listed heights (i.e. 4-5 ft) are measured from the top of the root ball to the top of the plant. Basically, what will be exposed out of the ground after planting. We do not count the root ball or container in the tree size.
Many of our plants come in the plastic Nursery Containers in which they are grown. These containers come in various sizes. Typically, the larger the container, the more mature and larger the plant is. The containers are measured by the "Gallon". More often than not, the larger the gallon size, the larger the plant.
