Eastern Cedar Tree (Juniperus virginiana)


Eastern Cedar Tree: Juniperus virginiana, the eastern cedar tree or the eastern red cedar, is a coniferous evergreen tree. It is a United States native species that will flourish in almost every USDA growing zone.


The eastern cedar tree is a more petite tree that reaches a mature height of around forty feet. It is hardy, easily transplantable, and a dependable grower that requires little to no care from the gardener after it establishes roots.


The fresh, distinct fragrance is unmistakably fresh and woody.


How to Use the Eastern Cedar Tree in Your Landscape


All the eastern cedar tree asks of you at planting is a sunny or partial-sun spot in your yard and well-draining but fertile soil. After planting, provide about an inch of water each week if you live in a climate that doesn't receive much rainfall. Once the roots take hold, the tree will become drought-tolerant, and you will only need to water it if you enter an extended drought phase.


The eastern cedar tree is gorgeous as the focal point in a natural area, in a semi-shade garden, or when trimmed back and shaped as a stand-alone specimen.


The Year-Round, Evergreen Beauty of the Eastern Cedar Tree

The eastern cedar tree enjoys immense popularity because it has a lovely, medium-green color all year. The tree grows upright and has an attractive reddish-brown bark.


The cedar foliage is a silvery, cool green--sometimes presenting as blue-green and grows in whorls of three. The evergreen needles are thin and delicate with a slightly prickly texture.


Small fairy-sized flowers appear in the late winter. They are white to white-green. They are so small that you might miss them hiding in the foliage.

    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.

    Eastern Red Cedar

    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.

    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.
