Hi everyone,

I'm new to this website and I have a problem with the identification of
two tree's I've just bought, I think the two are from the thuja family and I need to know their growth rates and eventual size.
It would be great if someone could help. I have included pictures. The 2'nd and 3'rd are the same tree the1'st the other

These appear to be Thuja occidentalis and a golden version. Small now, but kings of the forest if left long enough. Don't worry though I think you have about 30 years before the big foot's start appearing.

if it smells sweet then it is a Thuja, If it smells bitter it is a Chamacyparis.
