      A:  I planted these over a year ago, along an old back fence in the wooded section of my old house.  I sold the house 3 months ago, so I really can’t tell you how big these are now. They weren’t growing rapidly, but were still alive, last time I looked.

        A:  About 2 to 2.5 feet tall. Nearly a year later they're close to 6 feet tall.

          A:  Mine just were delivered. 2 of them. Very skimpy. 15" tall twigs. Tractor Supply had 3' very full evergreens, I bought 4...needed 2 more. Home Depot let me down.

            Shipping was fairly quick. Trees were MUCH smaller than anticipated (most between 2-3ft tall, one right at 4ft). Trees were also not particularly healthy with many dry branches and brown tops (not just typical green giant bronzing, in talking sickly brown). Honestly I feel like I got ripped off, tiny, wimpy trees in oversized pots. Should have been half the price. VERY disappointed and will not be buying online again. If Home Depot had any sense of obligation to customers, they would issue a refund for this sorry excuse of a tree. I'm attaching a picture of a "better" looking tree from my bunch that I hope will survive.

            Pruned to the point it was ruined.
            I’ve ordered these from the same vendor on Home Depot begore, and had luck. But the last two trees delivered had the central leader cut. Anyone who knows the most basic thing about trees knows that when you prune the central leader the tree will have a nearly impossible time getting any taller than that. Otherwise it looked healthy and arrived in good condition, but the apparent pruning done at the nursery made me have to return it. Most people buy these trees for screening purposes. Cutting the growth off at 2 feet will not let that happen. Please advise your employees how to better trim these. I like buying them but this trend isnt good.

              Beautiful, young tree!
              This tree is beautiful and appears very healthy. It's very green and thick. At the leader, it's 22" tall. I'm very excited to watch this tree grow!

                Good Delivery and Plants
                Very well packaged with no damage. Nice, healthy, tall (as described) plants. Glad I got them. Planted one so far and it's taking off. Others will be planted as a screen in areas of yard. All need watering daily as indicated for 30, then less per directions. These are the only Arborvitaes I found good for our zone and also with size we needed.

                I needed some trees for privacy in my yard and ran across these. I ordered 10 trees and received each of them in exceptional condition. All trees were nicely sized, very healthy and packaged perfectly. See pictures.

                  Ordered on sale from Home Depot online, order was shipped and delivered in great shape. Only problems was I ordered 7 trees to make a privacy screen between my neighbors and was confused to how far apart to plant them from each other and posted a question and the nursery said 5’ and the instructions said 9’-10’ so I planted them 9’ apart. It looks great.

                  These arrived in very healthy condition. Even when shipped in the beginning of summer, soil was still moist upon arrival. These shrubs were excellent size at a very reasonable price. Highly recommend!!!

                  High Quality even with 1 full week in transit
                  I'm very impressed with the quality of these Green Giant arborvitaes from Baucom's nursery. They come very well packaged with the pot double-bagged to hold in the moisture and soil. The plants themselves were 100% green and not at all dry. My plants were in transit for 7 full days (from east coast to west coast) in mid-May 2024. They were so well packaged with plenty of moisture still in the 7-gallon pots that they could have taken 2 full weeks and still have been in good condition.
