Western Red Cedar Hedging and Trees Evergreen

Western Red Cedar -trees and hedging Thuya Plicata .Western red cedar is excellent hedging for privacy and wind breaks, growing at a rate of 60cm per year approximately. An evergreen conifer with red-brown flaking bark and dark green foliage bronze tinted in winter.It is aromatic when handled, somewhat like the zest from orange peel. Slower growing than the Leylandii but a good alternative, similar in shape and looks. Potentially this is one of the most valuable softwoods we can grow in Britain. Its timber is as durable here as it is when grown in its native NW America. When used outside, even for roof shingles, "red cedar" is the best. Its productivity increases towards the west of Britain, but nevertheless it will grow almost anywhere. Trees exceed 40 metres tall in Wales and Scotland but reach a limit of about 30 metres in the south east of England. The foliage is good for florists.

Eventual height 40meters


Prefers moist, deep, loamy soil. Tolerant of acidic and alkaline soils.
