Affinity American Arborvitae (Thuja occidentalis 'Affinity') wasn’t originally meant for you. Sure, you will love it and sure it will perform like a champ and sure it will be a workhorse tree in your yard.
But it wasn’t grown with you in mind.
Affinity Arborvitae was originally grown with the farmer in mind. (Wait. Are you a professional farmer? If so, then please forgive us. This tree was meant for you!) It was developed by the USDA in Indiana to line fields as a windbreak to help farmers have healthier crops.
So you know that if it can keep the wind from knocking out acres of crops, you know that it can help keep the wind from ruining your backyard retreat. And since it blocks the wind so well, you know that it blocks the view just as well!
Plant several quick-growing Affinity American Arborvitae to keep that nosy neighbor from looking into your yard. Hide the ugly garage. Screen out that chain-link fence. Keep the wind from rolling your kid’s trampoline across the yard again this year.
The soft-looking foliage is evergreen – greener in the summer and more yellow-green during the winter – so put it where you can enjoy it all year. It makes a great foundation planting or backdrop for a perennial bed. (But choose your place wisely because they can grow to a whopping 80 feet after many years!)
