Cedar, Northern White – 12-24″ (4-0)
Northern white cedar (Thuja occidentalis) is a slow-growing, small to medium sized tree reaching heights of 25-60 feet. Northern white cedar is shade tolerant; however, it grows best in full to partial sun. It prefers moist, well-drained organic soils. It also grows well on dry, upland sites. Deer rely heavily on northern white cedar, which can pose a problem for establishing this species.
