Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Green Giant Arborvitea Ordered 3 Green Giant (Thujia) Arborvite a couple of days ago. Plants came in a very small box two days later. Was hoping to receive 3 individual plants, and thought they would be bigger(description stated plant would be 12''). Plant itself measures only 6-7" not including root clump. Plants came in very good condition. Planted accordingly per directions and watered. Using the Green Giant as a "privacy screen" seemed to be the best choice because of it's ability to reach several feet per growing season. Plant should be 6ft. by next year...I'm hoping for some added privacy from my neighbors. Will review again in 1 year. Eagar to see how fast these babies can grow! May 1, 2010
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 18 inch Aborvitae bare-root trees-Excellent! The trees cane fresh and green with wet newspaper wrapping the roots. They arrived on a Saturady morning, so I was able to get them in the ground the same day they arrived. Overall they were in excellent shape and I was very pleased with their health and quality. Planting bare-root trees is a much more economical way of planting lots of trees. May 1, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Arizona I bought 3 and when 1 box showed up, I was bit surprised. So I planeted them right away but we will see if they survive the Arizona summer. I did put a custume shade over the plants to help them from not burning up. Overall great service and product. May 14, 2011
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Do you like to watch things grow? Comes very tiny. But grows fast. The picture listed must be a 10 year old tree. Planted 1 month ago already gained 6-8 inches. Comes about 10 inch. Easy to plant / take care of. May 14, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by are you serious For the lady who said she rather plant cypress. First, the worms "bag worms" came from a nearby host, like your yard or your neighbors. Second, unless they were sprayed in the very beginning stages, you wasted your money and chemical, they have to be sprayed before they mature in the bags. Lastly, the Green giant is a fantastic evergreen worth buying and if you look at your landscape and notice bag worms, just pull the bags off the tree, which would be the best control because they like cypress trees also, and just about anything else, especially evergreens.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Pest problem! I purchased 13 4-6ft tall arborvitae to use as a privacy screen. Within two years they were infected by a commonly known moth/worm that gets inside the leaves and makes them turn brown. I paid an additional 500 dollars to a specialist to spray them to try to save them. Most of them came back, but I have about 4 that still need treatment. Had I known this, I would have purchased the leyland cypress. Make sure you research this pest issue before you purchase!!! June 25, 2011
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Really Just Planted--- The tree appears healthy. The top stem/branch was bent when received. I hope that straightens out. Otherwise I am looking forward to it becoming an attractive purchase for my yard. June 8, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Poor quality I ordered (3) online expecting them to arrive by truck in 7 gal. buckets. Instead, I got 3 "branches" with softball-sized root balls delivered by UPS. June 11, 2011
