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 to make the soundboard for guitars. Arborvitae's come in various types, shapes, and sizes. The Berkman is one of the older arborvitaes. The Berkman is known for its 'butterball' appearance and golden glow during the Fall. Moderate maintenance required to maintain its shape and with persistent cutting, it can be kept as a small tree.
