Several are browning to the point I am worried they are dying.

Hi Robin, we're sorry to hear that you're having trouble with your arborvitae. There can be several reasons why this is happening. If you just planted them, there is a chance your plants are experiencing some transplant shock. It is not uncommon for a few branches to die. However, you plants should bounce back once they adjust to their new environment. Another reason could be that your arborvitae is not getting enough water. We hope this helps! If you'd like, you can send a photo to claims@greatgardenplants.com and we'd be happy to take a look and provide some more specific tips. We do have a 60-day warranty on all of our plants. If your arborvitae has died and your order is still under warranty, we'd be happy to replace or refund your purchase. Also, we have a great article about arborvitae care here: https://blog.greatgardenplants.com/questions-answered-series-arborvitae-thuja/

Happy Gardening!

Impressive

I originally purchased 15 of these several years ago. I may have written a review then of how well they did. Fast forward a couple years later and new neighbors were trying to kill them and mowing around the trunks and weed wacking them. Long story short I put a 6' wood privacy fence due to boundary issues. The trees were already established and 4-5' tall and had to be dug up to put the fence in and replanted. I only lost one tree from replanting them and the neighbor's abuse which is impressive. It's been a couple years since and now they are getting close to 8'. They were everything I wanted them to be and you can't even see the wood fence behind they've filled in so well.

I am very happy with my trees!

I ordered eight 3 foot trees. I planted them two days later after fast arrival. They are growing wonderfully. I am very satisfied!

Amazing quality

You can't beat the size and quality of these trees at this price point. They are shipped well and arrive in great condition. I would recommend mulching around them and watering occasionally, they won't tolerate a drought until well established.
