Sounds like there aren’t too many tree lovers on this forum  Sad, but has anybody planted those “green giant” Arborvitae you see in all the spring gardening mags?  In recent years they have been heavily marketed as a super fast growing evergreen; up to 60 feet.  Yeah, I know good marketing when I see it, but other than the exaggerated hype, are these a descent Arb?  Especially in the Midwest?  

The green giants are a hybrid between the western red cedar (Thuja Plicata) and a Japanese arb (Thuja Standishii).  I have grown Thuja Plicata here in Michigan, but they don’t thrive as well as our native Arbs (Thuja Occidentalis).
