We purchased seven of these on Earth Day in 2008 and planted them in a raised bed along side a chain link fence in our West Humboldt Park garden in Chicago. We gave each of them a full bag of miracle grow soil when they were planted and watered them individually, for at least an hour, 3 times a week for the first season.
They have been in place for a little over a year now and the growth is nothing short of remarkable. Each has gained more than 18" in height and all will soon be taller than the 6 foot fence along which they are planted. We live along a busy street and these will, within a few short years, provide us with some much needed noise abatement and privacy.
Until they fill all of the space between them, we've supplemented by planting between them with colorful flowers. As they grow and fill in, we'll adjust what it there for a more permanent garden.
My only recomendation is that these be purchased from a local HD store and planted as soon as you can get them in the ground. To allow any plant to sit in a temporary container is hard on the plant and they need all the love and care they can receive during the transplant cycle so they will give back without incurring trauma.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by jprnrm Concern over what is in the store and what is online.
The trees, although small , seem to be in good shape.
My concern is , after we ordered these plants on line, we saw the same type of plant in the home depot store for $19.97 , instead of 25.97 each online. The
plants in the store were also , 4 foot high. The plants from online were less than 24 inches. The Plants in the store were not on clearance , That was the regular price of these trees. Why did we have to pay more online, than in the store for the exact same trees?

I purchased three of these plants and I love to sit in my family room just so that I can admire them. They provide a bit of solitude in my urban environment.

I have pruchesed one of these trees for the past two years. Only one a year, but am trying to build a hedge. This is the fastest growing pine, beautiful and I keep the top pruned so I will have a really beautiful hedge when I have the five I need to complete the look I am striving for. I love this pine tree. This year will be number three and I am in love with the look

I just received the Emerald Green Arborvitaes. The boxes were a little tattered; however, the trees were in great shape. They are very healthy-looking. A Beautiful green. Looking forward to planting and watching them grow.

Excellant as a border plant and wind block. Does great where many other plants will not. Here at 4,000 feet elevation and clay soil, these plants thrive and make a tall and beautiful fence.

The tree was packaged very well and looked hardy. I was worried how it would be sent but it looked great. It was packaged with gel beads to keep the moisture too.
