Michigan Native: NO
Will grow up to 3' per year until maturity. Darkens or bronzes slightly in the winter. Requires little or no pruning but can be sheared easily if necessary. Should be planted 5–6' apart for a screen or hedge. Is a public domain tree, meaning anyone can propagate it from cuttings. Has no serious disease or pest problems. Features tiny, scale-like, glossy green leaves that are packed closely together in overlapping rows on divided branchlets, displaying in a flattened, fan-like spray. Yields 1/2" long oblong cones that emerge green in the summer and turn brown in the winter. Releases a pleasing aroma when leaves are squeezed. Tolerates wind once established and withstands heavy ice or snow, making it a good choice for a fast-growing windbreak. Shows better resistance to browsing by deer than most arborvitae.
