A living fence of arborvitae is always nice, but some varieties take up a lot of yours (and your neighbor's) yard space. Polar Gold® arborvitae naturally grows with a narrow, space-saving habit, so you can achieve the same effect in a small area. New growth emerges a cheerful glowing gold color, which persists year-round.

Polar Gold arborvitae naturally grows as a dense, narrow pyramid, so little to no pruning is required. If you do wish to prune, do so in late spring/early summer, after the new growth has emerged. Avoid cutting into any very thick stems unless you are removing them entirely, as this can leave an unsightly hole in the plant and recovery from such cuts is typically slow.
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.
