Fast growing and upright with rich, medium-green foliage, this selection is an ideal choice for screening in a hurry! Rumored to be much less palatable to deer than occidentalis types, 'Green Giant' is a plant your customers will want to have.
Best grown in moist, fertile, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Tolerates a somewhat wide range of soils and some dry conditions. Best in full sun, but generally appreciates some light afternoon shade in hot summer climates. For screens, plant trees 5-6’ apart. Plant trees further apart for other uses.
