Cedar trees are a group of large, upright evergreens.
They don't all belong to the same family, and different species have different growing conditions. They tend to be very tall trees and live for a long time. Cedar trees are popular for use as natural screens in landscaping or to augment hedges.
Aside from landscape aesthetics, cedars are well-known for their aromatic wood.
The wood is naturally resistant to decay and insects, which makes it a great choice for making decks, wood planters, and lining for closets. Aromatic cedar essential oil can also be extracted from the bark for use in incense.
Cedar trees typically have soft, flaky reddish bark as they enjoy a lot of moisture. Cedar trees don't have needles like pine or fir, but more like scaley-leaves in a dark green or green-blue color.
After establishment, most cedar trees do not need a lot of extra care. Keep them well-watered and prune any dead branches.
