Answer: 
Arborvitae are tough plants and can be planted anytime that the ground is not frozen, although it is not advised to plant in late fall because the plant will not have time to get established before the winter sets in. If planting in summer, be sure to water frequently so that the roots stay cool and moist. Top dress with 3-4 inches of mulch to help retain ground moisture. After planting, the Green Giant Read More
Arborvitae are tough plants and can be planted anytime that the ground is not frozen, although it is not advised to plant in late fall because the plant will not have time to get established before the winter sets in. If planting in summer, be sure to water frequently so that the roots stay cool and moist. Top dress with 3-4 inches of mulch to help retain ground moisture. After planting, the Green Giant Arborvitae needs no special care. Provide at least 1-inch of water per week in the form of rainwater or irrigation. Mulch to prevent weeds and to keep roots cool and moist. No trimming is needed to maintain natural pyramidal shape. Fertilize with a balanced fertilizer in spring, if desired. Read Less

Rated 3.4 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by No planting instructions. Bought four to replace four emerald greens that died after eight years in the ground. Tag said scan box for plant info which it brings me to this site which has no planting instructions. I've planted three of these before with one dying within a year. As home depot has a one year warranty and I have had good results from the two that survived, I figuered I would try them again. I am going for a fast growing screen which I will have to prune as I don't want them any higher than twelve feet. I am hoping they survive as the green arborviteas I planted years ago grew slowly and just as they get to the height that I want them at they die. September 5, 2012
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 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 Product is great, customer interaction has minor flaws When I discovered they were going to ship 8 trees to me in a box, I was skeptical that they would survive the trip. But they arrived healthy and ready to plant. So far they're doing ok, but I'm not sure if I'm giving them the correct amount of water. The shipping details were not clear. It appeared that it would take 6-8 business days to receive them, so I set aside some time to plant them. Instead, I received them 2 days after I ordered them. I was busy w/ other stuff, so I had to scramble to get them planted. I don't think the watering instructions were very clear either. They came on a printed sheet in the box -- I looked at it while I was planting the trees, but becuz I was rushing, I lost the instructions. And they don't seem to be available on the website, which is ridiculous. Now the trees have some yellow spots, and I don't know if it's becuz I'm over-watering or under-watering April 25, 2012
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 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 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
