5 foot/7 gallon Thuja Emerald Green Arborvitae - $20 at Costco

+1 Deal Score
50,328 Views
I've seen these go for 3-4x this amount. No telling how long this deal will be around - they're selling fast at my store, but it looks like they are restocking. Last night there were 5, this morning there were 200, and tonight there were 150. I'm sure tomorrow will be a big sales day for them, so get there early.

All of them looked to be very full and healthy, and many were over 5' - some closer to 6. Definitely a good price for somebody looking for these.

I love these trees. They grow fast (a foot a year, IIRC) and full. Unfortunately, I found out they won't grow down here, when I moved to the DEEP SOUTH a few years ago. I had planned on using them as a privet 'fence' Frown

Yep, as you can tell by my past 7,276 posts, I'm definitely just a Costco shill.

How deep are you? I'm in southern TN, and they grow great here.

This was the Memphis area. Hopefully yours will have them in stock soon.

Based on the planting zones - you probably wouldn't want this in FL

Thanks for the coverage map. We live in the woods so this wouldn't benefit us anyways. Great for our northern property

I was suggesting the OP add YMMV to his title.

They usually have lots of different plants/trees that aren't listed on the web site.

Great price - think last time I looked they were $50ish. Much better trees than those crappy Leyland Cypress that everyone around us insists on planting.

Thanks OP!!

Good find, but it's not quite the same tree. Those are the green giants, which get much taller and wider. These top out at 15-20' tall & 3-4' wide.

Southern AR, near LA...deep Stick Out Tongue I actually found out they won't grow here when I watched Ask This Old House, a couple of weeks back. Turns out that arborvitae are like candy to deer, too.
