Thuja plicata/Western Red Cedar

Thuja plicata/Western Red Cedar

from 5.00

Western redcedar is one of our region’s grandest trees, considered the “tree of life” by many tribes and revered for its longevity — up to 1,000 years! The Pacific Northwest tribes have long valued this tree for its decay-resistant wood and the many products made possible by its flexible branches and stringy red bark. Western redcedar has a stately architecture, with old-growth trees attaining heights of 200 feet and 10-foot base diameters. The long flowing branches cascade downward and then curve up at the ends in a “J” shape. Redcedars do best in deep, mucky soils, and they tolerate saturated soils. Seedlings require some shade to become established. Mature plants can tolerate full sun. In small urban setting, they’re great for hedges--sheer regularly to keep to roughly 6' tall. Or allow to flourish as a full tree if space allows!
