How to Care for Emerald Green Arborvitae

Once you buy an Emerald Green Arborvitae, make sure to read about the care instructions that are required and recommended to keep this plant healthy and thriving.

How to plant Emerald Green Arborvitae trees?

Fertilizing an Emerald Green Arborvitae is key to promoting healthy growth and lush, vibrant foliage. The best time to fertilize these trees is in early spring, just before the onset of the growing season. This timing allows the tree to utilize the nutrients effectively as it enters its active growth phase. Use a balanced, slow-release fertilizer formulated for evergreens, which typically contains a higher nitrogen content to support foliage growth. Apply the fertilizer according to the package instructions, spreading it evenly around the drip line of the tree, which is the outermost circumference of the tree's canopy where water drips off the branches. Avoid placing fertilizer too close to the trunk to prevent burn. A second lighter application can be made in early fall to help the tree prepare for the winter months.

Emerald Green Arborvitaes are resilient trees that will thrive on their own; however, good fertilizer can promote thicker, healthier foliage. After planting, we recommend applying a slow-release fertilizer, such as Espoma Holly-Tone. Slow-release fertilizers also provide additional acid to the soil, which allows Arborvitae to thrive. If your soil is already acidic enough, adding nutrient-rich organic matter or compost will help support new growth and keep the plant healthy.

How to water Emerald Green Arborvitae trees?

How to water Emerald Green Arborvitae trees?

Watering an Emerald Green Arborvitae properly is crucial for its growth and overall health, especially during its establishment phase and in areas with hot, dry climates. Initially, after planting, water your arborvitae deeply to ensure that the water reaches the roots, encouraging them to grow deeper into the soil. During the first growing season, keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged, as overwatering can lead to root rot. A good rule of thumb is to water once a week with about an inch of water, either through rainfall or manual watering. As the tree matures, it becomes more drought-tolerant, but it still benefits from occasional deep watering during extended periods of dry weather. In hot summer months, increase watering frequency to prevent stress.

How to mulch Emerald Green Arborvitae trees?

How to mulch Emerald Green Arborvitae trees?

Mulching around an Emerald Green Arborvitae is an effective way to conserve soil moisture, suppress weeds, and provide insulation for the roots. To mulch your arborvitae, begin by clearing any grass, weeds, or debris around the base of the tree extending out to the drip line, which is the area directly beneath the outer circumference of the tree’s branches. Apply a 2 to 3-inch layer of organic mulch, such as shredded bark, wood chips, or pine needles, around the tree. Be sure to leave a small gap around the trunk of the tree to prevent moisture buildup, which can lead to fungal diseases and decay. The mulch layer should not be too thick as excessive mulch can suffocate the roots and hinder air and moisture penetration. Replenish the mulch annually to maintain its benefits, adding more as needed to keep the depth consistent and effective. Proper mulching not only enhances the soil quality as it decomposes but also helps maintain an optimal growing environment for your Emerald Green Arborvitae.
