planted in heavy clay, no protection, and seem to do just fine, too.
They definitely take some TLC until they're established here or else they'll dry out and die. Once they've been in the ground for a while they're pretty tough and can handle drought quite well.

The West side of my backyard is ringed by mature Tsuga canadensis that perform beautifully, but I lost two new ones last year because I didn't water them enough during the drought.
