Are these trees/shrubs good for noise reduction? We have trains about a mile from us with loud horns, will these trees provide some noise reduction if planted closer together in order to grow as a shrub wall?
Asked by: Dinda
Yes, the 'Green Giant makes a good sound barrier. They have dense foliage and a fast growth rate, quickly becoming a solid hedge. The closer you plant together, the faster the hedge forms, keeping in mind that eventually, the interior branches where the two shrubs will meet probably will "brown out" due to lack of sunlight. The exterior branches/foliage will remain lush and green.

If I wanted to use these for privacy.. would I space them 7 ft apart or 3 feet apart? The description mentions spacing 7 ft apart from other plantings but it states that they grow 5 ft by 3 feet in a year. Our goal is to have something approximately 5-6 ft tall but be a solid, neat and somewhat narrow screen between our yard and our neighbors yard.
Asked by: Gilmore
Hello, thank you for your question. Space as close as 5 ft. apart, to create a dense privacy hedge.

1 gal. Green Giant Arborvitae Tree is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 out of 5 by from 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!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad experience I returned them. They were too small and dying. I will never order things from Home Depot online again.
