Eastern Red Cedar
The drought tolerant, heat tolerant, and cold tolerant Easter Red Cedar tree is perfect for every climate from the north to the south, and it's an ideal tree for either city, rural, or country locations.
The Eastern Red Cedar's naturally sweet and woodsy smell functions as a natural repellent to pests, and so it's typically insulated from many diseases caused by pests that affect evergreen trees. Nonetheless, its dense foliage functions as a habitat for birds and desirable wildlife.
This beautiful evergreen tree creates an attractive privacy screen, and it blocks out a lot of noise. The Eastern Red Cedar is a high functioning tree, as well a gorgeous staple to your landscaping.
It thrives when planted in fertile soils and can adapt to other types of soils. These are lovely evergreen trees and work great to provide a border or natural privacy fence for a property. They grow to become thick and dense and are perfect for bringing birds to the area as they love to build nests inside the limbs of the tree. They produce lovely fragrant pine needles that can also be used for mulching around a home or added to gardens.
