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

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. ​

What makes us different?
 
The biggest thing that sets us apart from most other nurseries  is the fact that we grow what we sell. In the beginning we drove all over the country looking for Thujas to resale. This would not have been so bad other than you never new the kind of quality you would find. Now we grow the Thujas we sale, this makes the quality of our trees much more consistent. Over time we have learned a good way of packing the trees to where they make it to our customers in great shape.

Plant 5 to 6 Ft. apart. Stay back 4 Ft. off property lines. ​Will grow 6 to 8 Ft. wide x 30 to 35 Ft. tall. 
Do Not plant your Thujas closer than 5 Ft. apart thinking of quicker coverage ! If you plant to close together it will cause die-back as trees grow larger, not enough air circulation.
