while very drought tolerant, will grow much faster when given
the proper amount of water. Arborvitaes prefer soil that is
moist, and well drained. For growth that is faster and healthier,
arborvitae care for a soil that is alkaline based. Adding
a small amount of aluminum sulfate will provide for this.
part of arborvitae care is proper pruning. While most arborvitae
will keep their borders even and neat naturally, some will
have branches jutting out that can be an eyesore. Removing
these will make the plant seem healthier. Pruning an arborvitae
down to a hedge shape will also allow the plant to grow healthier,
and allow for the lower branches to have direct sunlight.
