• Height: 25-40 feet; 10- to 15-foot spread

  • Attracts: deer and many birds, for habitat

  • Growing conditions: Medium, well-drained soil; full sun is ideal; plant closer for hedge.

  • Water a lot in the first two years -- 2-3 gallons per week


Fun fact: Arborvitae means “tree of life,” so named because Native Americans used the tree to treat scurvy. ☺



Arborvitae/Eastern white cedar

  • Eastern white cedar, Arborvitae, is a dense, narrow evergreen with soft needles that emit a sweet scent when squeezed.  Its trunk features gnarly, reddish-brown bark. Great as a single specimen or as a hedge, screen or windbreak.
