Information about Your Cedar Seedling

About Northern White Cedar

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.

Thank you to Porcupine Hollow Farm.

Planting Instructions

  1. Dig a hole that is deeper than the length of the roots.
  2. Put the roots down into the hole and then pull the tree up so that the original dirt line is level with the ground.
  3. Make sure none of the roots are curled up in the bottom of the hole.
  4. Fill back in with soil and then gently tap down to get rid of all the air pockets.
  5. If possible, put about a quart of water on each tree.
  6. You can mulch around the trees to keep the weeds down and help with water retention. Just keep the mulch about an inch away from the trunk of the tree.
  Not ready to plant your seedling yet? If you put it in water, it will keep until you are ready to plant.
