While the Emerald Green Arborvitae can grow and thrive under most conditions, there are still ideal conditions where the Emerald Green Arborvitae is able to grow faster and blossom into a healthy and strong tree. Although the Emerald Green Arborvitae is tough, it’s not invincible. Aim to plant them during ideal periods, where they’re more likely to thrive. 

When Should You Plant Arborvitae Trees?

Plant your Emerald Green Arborvitae after the summer months’ heat to avoid hot and dry soil, which is not ideal for young trees. The Emerald Green is better planted during less extreme temperatures and when it can get full sunlight without excessive heat. This makes the Fall season the best time to plant your Emerald Green Arborvitae. These trees need sufficient watering while they’re still young and yet to be established. Once established, the Emerald Green Arborvitae can be watered sparingly. Your Emerald Green Arborvitae will also benefit from an acidic soil with a lot of nutrients and moisture. This can be achieved with the use of fertilizers and mulch in areas where the soil is not naturally acidic. Under the conditions stated above, your Emerald Green Arborvitae will grow quickly and strong. 

How to Plant Emerald Green Arborvitae? 

The Emerald Green Arborvitae grows in USDA zones 2 through 7. Plant your Emerald Green Arborvitae by first measuring the plant’s root ball. Place it in a hole that is as deep as the plant’s root ball but two to three times wider. For the best results, choose any fertile soil that doesn’t become soggy or marshy after rainfall. Once you place the root ball gently in the hole, ensuring that the roots come in direct contact with the soil, refill the hole and pat the soil down gently to remove air pockets. Water the soil enough so that the first 8 to 12 inches are moist. It’s crucial that the soil is regularly kept moist for the first 12 months after planting to ensure proper growth. Place a 3-inch layer of mulch around the tree to help deter weed growth and preserve soil moisture and temperature. Make sure the mulch does not come in direct contact with the soil. Finally, you can add fertilizer to the soil to ensure your Emerald Green Arborvitae gets more nutrients.
