Golden Globe Cedar Growing and Maintenance Tips

Golden Globe cedars benefit from light pruning to obtain a more compact shape. Damage or stem breakage may occur in the winter from ice and snow accumulation. This cultivar is particularly susceptible to windburn in the winter months. Protection (burlap wrap) from drying, winter winds is recommended in an exposed location.
