The arborvitae is one of the oldest conifer trees that provide multiple purposes in landscaping, music, and medicine. The oil from the bark is used in medicine and the wood is used as a soundboard for guitars. Arborvitae's come in various types, shapes, and sizes. The Green Giant is another of the older arborvitaes. The Green Giant is known for its disease resistance and popularity as borders and privacy screens.
