The Story

The hugely popular Emerald Green Arborvitae is a form of Eastern Arborvitae, an evergreen tree native to the northeastern U.S. and Canada that has played an important role in history. In the 1500s, the vitamin C in Eastern Arborvitae’s needles saved the lives of French explorers in North America who were dying of scurvy. Grateful Europeans called it the “Tree of Life,” or “Arborvitae” (“Arbor” meaning “Tree” and “vitae” meaning “life”). The highly esteemed tree was the first New World tree to be grown in European gardens. The sleek columnar selection known as Emerald Green’ was discovered in a Danish nursery in 1950. It gave the world reason to fall in love with this cherished tree all over again.

The Details

Landscape designers quickly embraced Emerald Green Arborvitae as the go-to tree for creating privacy screens in narrow spaces. However, it didn’t take long for people to realize that this humble utilitarian evergreen tree could also become an elegant specimen tree with some skillful creative pruning. Our Emerald Green Arborvitae Ball and Spiral Topiary Tree is a fine tribute to the art of topiary which you’ll be proud to showcase in your landscape.
