Thuja occidentalis emerald

This arborvitae occidentalis Smaragd delights with its even, very dense, compact, upright growth. This creates not only a visual screen in your garden, but also a neat sound barrier. Thuja occidentalis 'Smaragd' is hardy, makes few demands on the site or soil type and is suitable as a specimen garden plant in a border or your lawn, but is also excellent as a hedge plant due to its compact character.

What are columnar conifers suitable for?

Thuja occidentalis emerald is a classic hedge plant. The arborvitae grows slowly, so you will enjoy this tree, which can grow up to 8 metres high, for a very long time. The tree of life is also visually attractive in any outdoor area. The scale-shaped leaves take on an intense, light green colour that remains throughout the year. With the Thuja occidentalis Smaragd you are choosing a tree that has become increasingly popular with garden owners in recent years. The annual growth is about 10 - 30cm in height, depending on the location. An additional advantage of the slow growth is that annual pruning in June is sufficient.

Tree of life in your garden

The Thuja emerald has a conical shape. If you want to make a hedge from Thuja emerald, you can choose to leave this conical shape visible in your hedge. You will then get a very playful hedge with a beautiful effect. In this case you will need fewer plants per metre. You can also plant the plants closer together and when the desired height is reached, cut the Thuja hedge as a dense formal hedge. It is a matter of taste, but in both cases you will get a beautiful hedge of this hedge plant with its exceptionally beautiful green colour and pleasant fragrance.
