Re: re: tree

The northern white cedar (arbor-vitae) is known as Thuja occidentalis by botanists and other Latin-speaking people.  I don't know western trees, but maybe one of the faster growing western cedars is a Thuja as well.  Personally, I don't consider cedars to be good yard trees, but it is clear others disagree.  The community garden site isn't the right place to ask, though.  Maybe try www.gardenweb.com or, better still, see if your Extension Service has an urban forester.  Bruce

Subject: [cg] re: tree

I recently saw an ad for a very fast-growing conifer tree called Thuja x Green Giant.  I am looking for just such a tree but I have never heard of this before so would like to know more. Any information you could provide would be helpful.
Thank you.
