This beautiful evergreen grows well in a variety of soils but does not like to be extremely dry. They are planted as landscape specimens, windbreaks and hedgerows. At maturity they span 10-15' and attain a height of 40-60'. White cedars tolerate pruning well and can be kept smaller to make a hedge. Plant in an area that receives at least six hours of direct sun. They provide shelter for many types of birds. Birds and red squirrels also eat the seeds produced.
