Thank you for your question. Most plants fail after planting due to incorrect planting methods. Roots not separated or pruned; roots dry out due to inadequate watering before and/or after planting; or compacted soil. Obviously, I have no way of knowing any of this. Best I can do is give you a link to your state’s Extension publication on them: http://ipm.ucanr.edu/PMG/GARDEN/PLANTS/arborvitae.html Good luck!
