  • Description

    **Note** The ‘Emerald Green’ cultivar grows up to 12-15′ tall (versus the 40′ height of the straight species), and its foliage is a bright, rich green year-round.

    Northern White Cedar (Thuja occidentalis) is an amazing evergreen tree with a wide range of uses and a rich history. In its natural habitat it grows in cool, moist sites – near rivers and lakes – it prefers well-drained soil, but can also do well in swamps. When used in the landscape, it can be used as a specimen tree or a hedge. It can easily be pruned to your preferred look, or left to its natural pyramidal shape.

    Northern White Cedar is a slow-growing but long-lived tree. Commonly reaching ages of 400 or more, they account for some of the oldest trees in North America, some being up to 1,600 years of age. It’s a lightweight, easily split wood, which was used for canoe frames by the first Americans.

    Highly fragrant, beautiful, and teeming with history – you can’t go wrong with this truly iconic American tree.
