Pyramid Cedar Growing and Maintenance Tips

Typically grown as a hedge, pyramidal cedars can also be used in groupings for windscreens.  This cultivar is similar to the Emerald Eastern white cedar and is a good solution for landscapes where space is an issue, as it stays very narrow and compact. Damage or stem breakage may occur in the winter from ice and snow accumulation. Protection (burlap wrap) from drying, winter winds is recommended in an exposed location.
