When cared for well, Thuja Green Giants live for up to 40 years.

Keep in mind that the tree is susceptible to wind damage and can uproot easily.
"Buy from the grower"
Giant Green Arborvitaes are tolerant of drought, heat, humidity, cold, wind, ice and snow damage, and to many pests including deer. Growing 3 to 5 feet every year, a mature tree can reach as much as 50 feet tall and 5 feet wide in a span of 10 years. It will tolerate part shade and actually thrives in some light afternoon shade in hot summer climates. They are better suited for smaller landscapes, will fit easier into tighter spaces such as around a driveway, and will even grow in containers. Propagate the tree from stem cuttings from July through March.
