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 Emerald green is one of the older arborvitaes. The Emerald green is known for its tall and slender appearance. Widely popular as privacy hedges and landscape borders. The Emerald Green is also used for topiary, creating nicely swirled or tiered designs.
