Trees provide long-lasting beauty and increase your property values, but that's not all they have to contribute. Properly chosen and sited trees can reduce your heating costs in winter and your cooling costs in summer by maintaining a good thermal balance for your home.
When choosing an arborvitae or thuja variety, it is important to know the purpose or reasoning for the addition to your landscape. Will it be used as a privacy fence? Are you looking to add some color and shape to your design? Do you enjoy trimming your plants every season or are you looking for low maintenance?
