The narrow pyramidal, dense habit makes it a popular choice for a larger screen or windbreak than the more compact Emerald Green Arborvitae. Dark green, scale-like foliage occurs on sprays that are on horizontal to slightly upright branches, and does not yellow in winter. It may produce small, upright, light brown seed cones. This fast-growing Arborvitae sometimes has its foliage cut for use in winter décor. It can also be shaped into hedges. This variety is a nativar.
Other Names: Western Red Cedar; Giant Arborvitae/Cedar
