I planted 5 of these three years ago and they have tripled in size. They are beautiful. They stay green and aren't bothered by snow. I highly recommend.V. Clark, Wisconsin, United States, 25 weeks ago
These are beautiful, fast-growing trees. Deer love to eat all varieties of arborvitae, especially in Winter, so I don't understand why customers are factoring this into their ratings! Proven Winners cannot control the fact that people aren't protecting their trees from wildlife. Spray the trees with a non-toxic, organic repellent and they will do fine.Lori, 1 year ago
We ordered 9 of these in the spring of 2020. They grew exceptionally well over the summer. Unfortunately, in the fall rabbits ate two of them down to just nubs. So far they do not seem to be growing back. Otherwise they have been great so far and will hopefully be good privacy screens in a few years.Jen, Maryland, United States, 1 year ago
