The Space Saver
Very Fast Grower to 25 Ft.
Selected for its super-fast growth and tall, narrow habit, this arborvitae sets the new standard for hedges. This very hardy and heat tolerant North American native maintains a desirable columnar shape without pruning, so you can quickly block ugly views without a lot of work.
'American Pillar' Thuja is a vastly improved arborvitae with a dense well branched habit. 'American Pillar' is a fast growing variety that has shown excellent resistance to deer browsing. The glossy, green foliage has a narrow, columnar habit and maintains excellent winter color.
The American Pillar has no equal for screening homes or entire subdivisions from the noise of busy streets without spreading wide and eating up valuable space, walkways and driveways.
The American Pillar will withstand extremes of heat, cold, and moisture, making it a candidate for home landscapes, and screening situations in most of the lower forty-eight states. Other plants commonly used for screening purposes, such as hemlock and pine, have diseases that are depleting their usefulness. Leland cypress is being attacked by the lethal Cercospora needle blight which is now widespread across the South and East.
As patent developer of the new American Pillar arborvitae, the late John Houser was a propagator, nurseryman/grower, installer, and promoter of the American Pillar Arborvitae. This is a new cultivator with the unique ability to rapidly grow very tall and dense, while remaining very narrow. The American Pillar fills a real need with homeowners, residential and industrial builders. We know of no other plant that has the ability to grow so tall, dense and rapid, while maintaining its very narrow stance. In an era of larger houses on smaller lots, this evergreen will, in a short time, achieve privacy for back yards, swimming pools, and yes, even second story decks!
The American Pillar has no equal for screening homes or entire subdivisions from the noise of busy streets without spreading wide and eating up valuable space, walkways and driveways. It cost less overall than a wood fence or any other tall plant screening. Many board fences are in need of replacement or of continued costly maintenance during a ten year period. Consider the beauty of an American Pillar privacy screen!
