Q.Planting an Arborvitae Near Tulsa

Anonymous added on September 24, 2012 | Answered

We have not lived in Oklahoma too long, so we are learning about growing plants here. We had an arborvitae tree growing at the corner of our house which has turned brown. I’m assuming it died due to this summer’s intense heat. We want to pull it up and plant another. WHEN is the best time to do that and can you give me any tips on how to plant it so it will thrive?

Fall is likely the best time for this in your area. You may want to consider planting another where it will receive some afternoon shade, which will offer some relief from overly hot temps and scorching sun. You should also water the tree more during these higher temps, at least twice daily if over 85. degrees F.
