Eastern Cedar Tree Description

Eastern Cedar Tree

Eastern Cedar Tree: Juniperus virginiana is a Coniferous Evergreen.

This Tree belongs to the Cupressaceae family and is widely seen in streets and parks across North America. It grows in most soils and proliferates rapidly from seedlings, a first responder in neglected fields.

It can grow up to 40 to 50 feet in height and 2 feet in width until they reach maturity. Proliferating at a medium to fast rate can go over 8 feet tall in only five years when planted in well-drained soil. The Tree increases around 13 – 24" every year. You should grow it in full sun with at least six hours of daily exposure.

Eastern Cedar Trees are fast-growing evergreen trees that may live up to 500 years

The aesthetic green foliage of this Tree makes it a gorgeous choice among trees. From dark green to blue-green and bronze in winters, it is a sight to the eyes in all seasons. The leaves of these trees are of two types. One type is awl-like, around a half-inch in length, and points away from the twig, while the other type is scaly and dull-pointed, only 1/16 inches long.

Leaves feel sticky on the touch and fine-cut or coarse. The buds are tiny and hidden under the trees, and the twigs are four-sided and appear square. 

The male and female of these trees are easy to distinguish as they produce different kinds of flowers. The female plant bears green flowers while the male counterpart has yellow flowers—however, both blossom in late winter. Both cones are also different, with the female cones maturing in autumn.

They are blue with a gray-blue look and 1 to 4 seeds. On the other hand, the male trees have pollen-bearing cones on the branch tips. They typically grow pyramidal when young and later shifts towards a columnar look. In the North, however, mature pyramidal trees are also seen. The trunks are reddish-brown, covered with a waxy gray material.

The mature cones are usually dark blue and fleshy instead of woody like pines. Cones of these trees are an essential food source for various bird species such as the Cedar Waxwing. These trees can grow in almost all kinds of soil, weather, acidic, moist, loamy, silty, sandy, moist, or alkaline soil. 

They can even grow in clay and are most suited as windshields as they are drought tolerant. Salt tolerance allows it to be planted on sidewalks and driveways as well. This Tree is commercially available and can be propagated without much hassle.

Plant seeds need to be sown where you wish to grow the plant. The best seasons to sow the seeds are autumn and spring. Use more than a few seeds to ensure the best ones propagate and become strong trees. You can also use cuttings for propagation.

    My vacant space in my farmtown looks so good with this tree. I have to plant another of this kind in the opposite side to get a balance of view. Thanks TN nursery for providing me the best choice.

    I am very impressed with the shipment of Red Cedars that I received. The trees appear in great condition with healthy root structures. Will order again.

    First time buying a bare-root tree. It was healthy on arrival. I love the tree so much that I ordered two more. They are all looking good! I want to make the backyard a haven for birds and this is the way to go. Healthy trees are delivered quickly. Thank you Tn Nursery.

    I received the tree on April 8th and it arrived nice and healthy. I planted it the next day since we were expecting a wind storm on the 8th. So far it looks good. I hope it produces juniper berries to attract Cedar and Bohemian Waxwings.
