The emerald greens I had delivered were a joke, they were the size of something that you would put on a coffee table! In store had been out for a few weeks do to the landscapers buying them all up. The day I returned them in store they had gotten a small shipment, and for $5 bucks a tree more I got some 30” nice ones. If your local store doesn’t have any, just keep checking, they’ll get some more in.

Very happy and Impressed
I've received 6 of 10 so far. They're all between 2.5'-3' tall. I paid 18-19 each on pre-Spring sale a few days ago, early March. They appear healthy and lush, no damage. We just got another snow storm in CO so they'll be sheltered indoors until April most likely. I'm very excited for these plants! Theyll be a lush evergreen garden background and they'll grow to be perfect height for privacy between us and our neighbor's backyard (our 2nd-story back porch overlooks their ground-level back porch).

      I ordered 3 and they all came in beautiful condition and taller than expected. They were boxed extremely well and packaged so that the soil was moist. I was very, very pleased with these trees.

      Maybe these are intended to be bonsai arborvitae?
      When delivered - in October 2016 - these were just over 12" tall. Since then, growth has been very slow. Currently just over 30" tall. Based on this we might have a row of trees such as shown above in about 20 years time.... Not as expected!

        These are NOT DEER RESISTANT-the product information is incorrect. https://njaes.rutgers.edu/deer-resistant-plants/ http://blandy.virginia.edu/arboretum/deer-resistant-plants The 2 that I bought are still 6 inches tall after a year and a half. Bought & planted these in Fall 2018. Zone 7A Northern Virginia. You can barely see it in the picture, but it is there.

          We ordered 8 & they came delivered in tall boxes of 2. The plants were moist and very healthy. I was very impressed with their shipping. Some day they will provide a beautiful privacy screen. For now they are an attractive addition to our landscaping at our newly constructed home. I have always admired the arborvitae as I ride along & take in the scenery. Now I am excited to have others admire mine!

          I bought 5 of these evergreen trees for a privacy fence & was so pleased but because its a extremely hot/dry summer I potted them on into larger pots with good soil and put them somewhere where they can get some shade in the afternoon cos they are still young after all (the morning sun in in the upper 90`s already) but 1 week later 2 of them are turning yellow despite me watering them every evening. There`s nothing else i could do for them, so im wondering if its worth me buying replacements?

                  Do Not Buy On Line
                  I ordered these online because I had no way to pick them up at the local Home Depot and needed them delivered. The pictures are deceiving. These were very small, maybe 2 feet tall plants for the price of a 5 to 8 foot tall one in the store. They need a more honest description of the plant online, not just. the size of the tub it comes in.

                  I was skeptical ordering trees online. The packaging was exceptional. It was easy unboxing them. All 10 were very very healthy. I will reorder from Home Depot again next year. Great quality and very fast delivery. Thank you. Surprisingly awesome!

                                I bought 17 plants. They were all very small when they were shipped. Planted them correctly. They seemed to grow in the first month. Then 15 out of 17 died in second month.

                                    Plants are to small and I am afraid they will not survive a winter storm, it’s sad that Home Depot it’s a great company but doesn’t show no consideration for they customer , they should sell this one in a bigger size , at the end they will make more money with the purchase additives to support the well of the plant

                                        I ordered 5 of these and have followed the care instructions verbatim. I even bought soil, built up the berms, and followed the fertilizer instructions. 4 of them are dead. All 5 have the same sun/shade exposures, receive the same watering, are in the same soil, etc. yet only 1 is alive and thriving. I cannot make sense of this.
