How to Grow and Care for a Thuja Green Giant Tree

The thuja green giant is one of the most popular landscaping plants that help create effective barriers and privacy screens in outdoor spaces. These hardy and low-maintenance trees can grow up to 20 to 40 feet tall and are an excellent way to boost your curb appeal.

These trees come in a range of varieties; all are completely disease resistant because of their hardy leaves.

If you’ve been planning to invest in thuja green giants for your outdoor space, here is a quick guide on how to care for your thuja trees.

Light Requirements

The thuja green giant is a fast-growing tree and requires almost full to partial sunlight to grow properly. These trees thrive in full sunlight and need around six hours of direct light every day to stay healthy and full of life.

Soil Type

Thuja green giants can adapt to various soil types, from sandy soil to clay. But if you want to provide optimum growing conditions to your tree, opt for acidic soil. However, these trees do not mind growing in alkaline soil either.

Make sure the soil does not have the tendency to stay soggy or oversaturated for a long time. These trees cannot survive in standing water for a long time.

Watering Requirements

Thuja green giants frequently get thirsty and should be watered each time they dry out during summer. You can water your thuja trees twice a month when the weather starts to get a little colder.

You can identify signs of thirst in your thuja trees by observing their leaves. Their leaf needle tips will start to look a little dull and weak. But if your tree’s branches are drooping, that might be a sign that you're over-watering them.

Fertilizing Thuja Trees

Thuja trees generally do not need to be fertilized. But you can give them a well-balanced fertilizer once or twice a year to boost their growth. It’s also important to prune them to encourage growth.
