Techny Arborvitae

Thuja occidentalis - Techny

The Techny Arborvitae is the broad based arborvitae that is so popular these days.  This evergreen has dark green, fern like foliage forming into a pyramidal shape as it matures.  This selection is extremely cold hardy and is the most drought resistant arborvitae.  The Techny Arborvitae is low maintenance, adaptable to many soils and makes a great privacy hedge even in those somewhat shady areas.

    What is the recommended spacing when using this variety for a privacy screen?

    Nov 8, 2019, 14:52

    The Techny Arb will attain a mature spread from 6-10'. You could plant them 3-5' apart. As the trees branch out, they seem to figure out quite nicely how neighboring branches just fill in space. With that said, you may wish to plant small seedlings closer than 5' apart, so that you will be able to reap the benefits more rapidly.

    Do you have techny arborvitae available 4 ft.tall.and if so what would the cost be for about 30 of these. Could you advise about other trees that would provide screening like the techny that would be availabel starting at 4 ft.

    Good afternoon Mr. Beetham. We do not sell trees of this height, only small seedlings and saplings that are 6-12" in height. Thanks, CRN

    Are deer a concern with this plant?

    Mar 15, 2018, 11:47

    Techny Arborvitae is not a deer resistant tree. If you are seeking an arb which exhibits resistance to deer, we would suggest the Green Giant Arborvitae. You can find that tree on our website, too!

The Techny Arborvitae is a smaller arborvitae, reaching about 15' tall and 6-10' wide at maturity.  These arbs make a great choice along patios, property lines or anywhere you need a screen or visual boundary.  Planting these trees 3-4' apart will give you a thick and solid living wall that looks beautiful year round.

Common uses for the Techny Arborvitae:

  • Privacy screen or living fence
  • Evergreen gives you color year round
  • Smaller scale windbreaks
  • Shelter for many types of birds

The dense foliage of the Techny Arborvitae provides great nesting and roosting cover for many types for smaller birds.
