The early explorers took
note of the tree. Arthur Barlowe and Phillip Amadus were quoted as saying the trees were
"the tallest and reddest cedars in the world" when they arrived at Roanoke
Island in 1564. Colonial craftsmen lost no time in using the wood from the Eastern
Red cedar for furniture and fences as it had superior weathering capability and was easy to
work with. The wood was a staple of the pencil industry for over a century until supplies
became exhausted and the industry switched to more plentiful western cedars. Birds are
very fond of the berries, the Cedar Waxwing taking its name from the tree whose fruit is
its favorite food.
Cedar Tree Trivia

Cedar trees are evergreen, leaves stay on year round, and make great privacy hedges to hide objects such as transformers, fire hydrants, neighbors old car ... and Spring time is a great growing time to plant cedars as the ground is wet, the sun not too hot to dry out the soil, so your maintenance of the trees is minimal and risk of tree loss is at it's lowest.
Emerald Cedar Trees
Emerald or pyramidal cedar is readily sold by the truck load at the local building store and garden centers in Spring.

Are Your Cedar Trees Turning Brown?

Cedar Trees Trimmed
Cedar hedges which are trimmed and shaped at least once a year always look best.
Eastern White Cedar trees are the most popular trees for creating a natural hedge. They are inexpensive, easy to transplant and grow quickly. They are an excellent choice as a privacy fence, windbreak, or for noise reduction.
Cedars can serve two privacy purposes. One to prevent neighboring eyes from seeing you ... and second to prevent and hide undesirable objects from your view.

Cedars are the perfect option to create a living fence. A mature cedar hedge offers great year round privacy but can also be used to define and remind your neighbors where your property line is.

Dieback of cedar hedging is fairly common and can be caused for a variety of reasons. If the whole tree has died it suggests damage to the root system either during planting or due to environmental stresses. Cedar hedges are less likely to die as a result of disease, insects, or injury caused by the animal population.
Cedar mulch is a popular decorative landscape treatment for garden beds.
Cedar mulch is processed from the bark and unused materials from lumber and wood production. Cedar mulch suppresses weed growth, conserves water, minimizes soil erosion and is a natural insect repellent.

You may not want to use cedar mulch in your vegetable garden as it could be phytotoxic to your plants.
