Thuja 'Gelderland

The giant tree of life is an evergreen tree that reaches heights of up to 50 metres in its native North America. The scale-like leaves are pressed against the twigs. They already smell aromatic even without being rubbed; the scent is refreshing, woody and has a relaxing effect.

What is the 'Gelderland' tree of life suitable for?

If you long for the pleasures of a visually dense garden to compensate for a turbulent life, consider planting a hedge. A Thuja hedge is a good choice. Thuja plicata 'Gelderland' is a good strong variety among the Thuja species. The fresh green will give your garden a relaxed look all year round. Because of its calm appearance, this garden plant combines very well with other garden plants.

Tree of life in your garden

The slightly overhanging loose shoots make a cosy, lively hedge. The scale-like leaves are glossy fresh green above, lighter below. Thuja plicata gelderland is comparable to Thuja brabant, but the colouring is more intense and darker. Ideal for an impenetrable, narrow to keep, hedge with an annual growth of 30cm. The hardy Giant Life Tree is shade tolerant and site tolerant.
