Green Giant' Arborvitae/Thuja in Northern Utah

All 4 Green Giant' Arborvitae/Thuja I bought last year died by the end of fall, following all instructions. I bought 4 more Green Giant' Arborvitae trees in 2022 planting them end of April, and using a different method of ground prep (twice the area as recommended). Northern Utah is a challenge growing these trees as it is low humidity, high summer heat, with low rain/snow fall. That being said I have increased the watering from last year to include a total soaking (6-8 gals?) on each tree every other day, at night/early morning with good drainage. Along with adding ORGANIC fertilizer to the soil when planting (new from last year), I sprinkle the same fertilizer (small amount) around the ball perimeter each month and soaking it into the soil. Customer service is very good, I only would recommend extending the warranty of TREES to 12 months, 2 months is not enough time to learn if a tree will live or die.

Great trees!

The trees arrived quickly, in great condition. I have previously ordered these trees elsewhere, and was VERY pleasantly surprised at the quality. They started growing immediately, and are obviously healthier and a better quality than any others I have seen. In the future, I will definitely purchase from Great Garden Plants, rather than from any other site.

Great trees

I bought 21 GG trees and they arrived promptly.
All green and very nice size to them.
2 were a little bare but still alive. I notified great garden about my concern and quickly sent me 2 more.
3 months later all are still beautiful and growing

Go Green

Ordered and planted 8 across the back of my lot. They have been in the ground approximately a month. I try to water them daily and so far they are all thriving and taking root. They will provide the desired privacy several years from now.
