17 Feb Thuja Occidentalis Smaragd
This is probably the most popular hedging tree for Whistler & Pemberton because it is ideal for small gardens.
Low maintenance, nice bright green colour during all seasons.
Plant 2 to 2 1/2 feet apart for hedge. Use where ever you need a slender hedge from 5 feet to 12 feet in height.
It’s very shallow root system must not be allowed to dry out during the dry summer months.
It does need full sun, it will do poorly in full shade. It also tolerates snow load reasonably well after there established, although its a good idea to tie them up each winter or knock the snow off as much as possible during heavy snow falls.
