Emerald Green used as a screen
This is the evergreen of choice for very narrow screens. It requires no pruning
to keep its tight, compact columnar shape. Planes in sun to part shade, it will
grow to 18ft tall and 4ft wide. Plant 3ft apart for a lustrous green screen year
round. Emerald Green grows about 1ft per year in a wide range of soils, although
it will not tolerate wet, swampy soils. In addition, the arborvitae is not salt
tolerant, so avoid road-way planting.
