Arborvitae Green Giant
We are interested in planting a tall "privacy fence" on the edge of a farm. It has been suggested that we plant a "wall" of Arborvitae Green Giant. They claim it grows to 50 feet tall and is capable of growing three feet a year. They say it requires no pruning.
This sounds like it's too good to be true. Is there a down side to this tree? How long does it live?
What else should I know?
What would be the tree suggestion for the "fence" in a deep shade location. It must be an evergreen,
Thanks in advance for your help.
