Plant Characteristics

Techny Arborvitae

Thuja occidentalis - Techny

Techny is a broad, compact pyramidal arborvitae reaching about 15' tall and 6-10' wide at maturity. This evergreen has dark green, fern-like foliage. Techny is drought tolerant, extremely cold hardy and resistant to wind burn. The Techny Arborvitae is low maintenance, adaptable to many soils and makes a great privacy hedge even in partially shaded areas.

This evergreen is a fine choice along patios, property lines or anywhere you need a privacy screen.  Planting these trees 3-4' apart will give you a thick and solid living wall that looks beautiful year round. Also sold under the name 'Mission'.

Common uses for the Techny Arborvitae:

  • Privacy screen or living fence
  • Evergreen for year-round color
  • 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 of small birds.
