Also known as northern white cedar. A native, dense, pyramidal evergreen tree with a height of 40-50’ and a width of 10-20’. Needles are soft, scale-like, flat, aromatic when crushed. A long-lived, sturdy tree with a slow to moderate growth rate. Shallow, fibrous root system. Excellent for windbreaks as it creates a dense wall. Will tolerate poorly drained soils and moderate shading.
*Age Key on Conifers: TP indicates 'Transplants' where seedlings have been lifted & spaced into transplant beds - number indicated years in seedling bed, then transplant bed; so a '2-3 TP' is a 5 year old TransPlant.
