The Green Giant Arborvitae is A quick-growing, cold hardy, and long-lived evergreen. The Green Giant is known for its quick dense growth once it’s established. This is very quickly become the replacement plant for Leyland Cypress which will die fast and is very weak branched. The green giant is much stronger, longer-lived, and all-around tougher. Arborvitae in general is tough species that are well known and common. These work great for large areas. This plant makes great privacy screens, hedges, & wind blocks. These do get much larger than some places advertised at one time. At one point these were advertised to max out at around 25 to 30’ but they can actually reach 60’. When it comes to conifers like arborvitaes in general, but specifically the green giant in this case, do not expect fast growth soon, they typically will go by the sleep, creep, leap rule. In the first year, they sleep above ground mostly while getting roots established, the second year they add a little bit of growth and a lot more root growth, then in the third year they typically take off growing at their full potential based on their growing conditions.
