Looking for a fast-growing, evergreen tree to use as a hedge or windbreak? Look no further than Thuja occidentalis 'Pyramidalis', also known as the Pyramidal American Arborvitae. Unlike its closely related cousin the Western Redcedar, this tree is a smaller variety, growing to a height of 60 ft and a trunk diameter of 1 ft. Its bright green foliage forms in flat sprays with scale-like leaves, and it produces slender, yellow-green cones that ripen to a brown color. Not only is this tree tolerant of regular trimming, making it perfect for hedges and windbreaks, but its fresh branches can even be used as besoms to deodorize your home while sweeping. Plus, the leaves and stems can be used as incense, perfume, and insect repellent, and the tree's essential oil has insect repellent properties as well. Don't miss out on this versatile and stunning tree!
