Green Giant (Thuja x 'Green Giant'), Grows to 40 feet with a broad pyramidal habit. Thuja Green Giant is deer-resistant, fast growing, aromatic, and is used for wind breaks, Christmas trees, or as a distinctive specimen. Its growth habits are similar to Leylands. Once established, expect about 3 feet of growth per year. Thuja Green Giants do great in the South, but have a farther reach North than Leylands. They tend to bronze a bit in the winter, but green back beautifully in the Spring. Landscape Architects are beginning to use Thuja Green Giants instead of Leylands because they are resistant to the fungus (Cerosporidium sequoiae) that is damaging Leylands.
