Arborvitae 'Green Giant'
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.
