Thuja Hedging Conifers

Thuja plicata atrovirens, Western Red Cedar Hedge

Thuja or Western Red Cedar Hedges are a great choice for a fast growing evergreen conifer hedge. Thuja is an evergreen conifer similar to green leylandii but slightly slower growing making it easier to maintain as a hedge. Thuja can kept as a formal hedge from 5 foot upwards. Thuja hedges will tolerate harder pruning than a leylandii hedge and will often regrow quite well when cut back hard into older wood. The foliage of a thuja hedge is mid – dark green and has a wonderful almost fruity aroma to it, if crushed. This long lived native american tree was once used extensively by the indigenous people who depended on the tree for their basic materials. Naturally a large tree Thuja can be used effectively as a hedge, and is also perfect for screening A Thuja hedge is easy to grow and is tolerant of most conditions. Thuja can be kept at any height and width if trimmed annually. An excellent choice for a faster growing formal hedge or tall screen.

Rootballed plants are available in bigger sizes from October through to April, weather dependent. These plants are grown in bigger sizes going up to 3 metres in height. Rootballed plants are lifted during the plants dormant period. This reduces the amount of stress imposed on the plants and increases the chances of successful re-establishment. Plants are also lifted to order to minimise the time they are stored out of the ground before replanting. Although rootball plants may seem expensive many of these plants will be between 6-15 years old and will have been root pruned and trimmed many times before they are lifted. Rootball plants tend to be bushier than pot grown plants as they have been out in the field and more exposed to the elements. They are lifted from the field using specialist machinery and the soil rootball is hessian wrapped to protect it. This protective wrapping should be left on at planting and will naturally bio degrade.
