I'm interested in planting evergreens to provide privacy screening. My row of Douglas Firs have been decimated by a fungus and need to come down. I came across the Thuja Giant evergreen tree.
What's your experience with the tree? Growth rate? Disease and Pest Resistance? Appearance? Thanks in advance.

What are you trying to screen your property from? And, how close do you
plan to plant them? Do you really need something *that* tall as a "privacy
screen" (including the Doug Firs, heh)?
Also, please don't post in HTML when posting to the USENET. It's completely
unnecessary, and will quite possibly result in your posts not even being
read. Most users I know, block posters who post in HTML format. Many
thanks, and HTH.
