View Full Version : Arborvitae Selection/Questions?

06-12-2007, 11:53 AM

I am about to get (28) 5 foot Arborvitae trees planted about 3 feet apart . I have the choice between Emerald Green and Nigra. My landscaper says either would work fine.

What are you opinions on which to choose? I live in Langhorne, PA

Go with the Emerald. The Nigra spreads about 10'. The Emeralds 4'

Emerald green. nice color and form. i would go to 3.5-4' spacing if possible.
p.s., watch the deer!!!!!

Your ringing the dinner bell for the deer as greg1 said and I've seen some nice deer come out of PA. Good luck.

Oh yeah emerald green gets my vote

Thanks for your advice. There will be no deer to worry about in my neighborhood.

I have the optino to plant them 2 1/2 or 3 feet apart? If there a big difference?
