Known as the tree of life for how fast growing the green giant tree is. Slow release fertilizers will help give this tree the boost it needs in early spring. The root system will establish after 1 year if watered thoroughly. After 1 year, it is fairly drought tolerant. Thuja green giant spacing should be planted 5-6 feet apart because of their girth and length.
