Privacy trees create lush living fences to help screen your backyard from unwanted prying eyes. Mostly we all love our neighbors, However they do have a bird's eye view into our backyard barbecues and the opportunity to take notes as we dash across the driveway in our PJs, putting the trash cans out before the garbage truck arrives.

You can make your residence more private by planting trees to block the view into your yard from curious neighbors or passersby. Generally, you’ll want evergreen trees for this purpose in order to create a year-round privacy screen. Privacy trees can be a gorgeous option for increasing the privacy in your home and yards. Feel free to relax on your patio or swim in your pool without nosy neighbors watching.


You might already know some of the benefits to having trees on your property: they boost curb appeal, attract beneficial insects, and help to purify the air. Often, they can even increase the value of your home.

Trees have particular benefits when it comes to privacy as well. First, they are sustainable and eco-friendly. If you’re looking to minimize your impact on your environment, planting trees will always be a better option than installing invasive hardscaping.

Planting Tips :

(1) Dig your holes half again the width of the container they were grown in and the same depth of the container.

(2) After digging your holes, set your tree in the middle of hole.

(3) Make sure top of root ball is even with ground level, if not adjust by digging deeper or adding soil in bottom of hole and packing it good.

(4) Back fill one half way up on root ball, pack the fill good around the root ball.

(5) Finish filling hole to the top of root ball & tap down real good. If you do not pack it well, it may not hold the tree up straight after it is watered.

(6) DO NOT put soil on top of the root ball, this will cut off the oxygen to the roots.

(7) Now comes the most important part of planting!  You need to mulch right away a good 3 to 4 inches deep. You don't want to let the rain wash dirt over top of the root ball and close off oxygen. Create a basin around each tree with the mulch, this guides the water to the root ball.

(8) Your trees being planted correctly is the most important part of all,  its growth and survival depends on it! Be sure and keep weeds and grass from around trees, if you do not do this your trees will have a hard time getting enough water to be healthy. 


Fertilizing Facts :
  • Foliage color,  yellowing of foliage can be signs of fertilizer needed.

  • If growth rate and needle color are normal for a particular variety, fertilization is not necessary.

  • It is not unusual for newly transplanted evergreens to exhibit slow growth until they're re-established.

  • In many landscapes, evergreens also benefit from fertilizer you apply to the lawn.

The best time to fertilize your Thuja trees is before new growth expands, around early April mid-May
