Cedar Deodar

Huge Ornamental Tree for Any Landscape


The heights we list are the actual size of your tree.

Many Nurseries advertise heights before they prune, then cut off several feet before shipping. While this reduces their shipping cost, it gives their customer a shorter tree than they bargained for. The tree will likely need an extra year to grow back the growth that was trimmed.

We do not prune evergreen trees for any reason. Evergreen trees typically hold their shape for the life of the tree and do not require any pruning or shearing.

Plus, we don't include the pot or root length in our measurements. This gives you an extra 1-2 ft. in tree size.

Our larger trees are usually one to two years older than our smaller ones and will typically give you better, thicker privacy the first full growing season.

3-4 ft.

Cedar Deodar (Cedrus deodara) is an evergreen tree that can reach 70 feet high and 20 to 40 feet wide. It does best in zones 7-9. Today it is a popular landscape specimen that provides year-round interest with its attractive pyramid shape and lovely green-silver color. Cedar Deodar trees thrive in a variety of moist, well-drained soils including: • Loam • Sand • Clay It is also tolerant to drought and prefers a location that provides full sun. This tree is fairly fast growing, making it an excellent choice for a windbreak or for privacy on your property. Graceful branches sweep toward the ground and then up. Two-inch long whorled needles give this tree a softer look. These needles drop in the spring, allowing for new growth. Male trees produce catkins that hold copious amounts pollen, which is spread in the early spring. Female trees have 3-5 inch egg-shaped cones that shatter, releasing the trees seeds. This tree lives a long time, requires little pruning, if any, and is relatively free from health issues, so once planted, it will provide maintenance-free beauty for generations. When planting a Cedar Deodar, make sure you select a wide open area to allow for its mature size. Avoid overly windy locations or areas that tend to be soggy. Watch out for potential overhead hinderances, like power lines, and consider other landscape plants that may get crowded out as the tree grows. Plant your Cedar Deodar in deep, well-drained soil in the late spring or early fall. Water it regularly its first year to help it get established. After that, watering can be reduced. Fertilize in the spring with a 3-1-2 fertilizer. If you opt to prune lower branches that may be in the way of walking paths, do so in the winter. Cedar Deodar makes a stunning focal point when three to five trees are clustered in a large, open area. Put them near the back of your property so you can enjoy the full effect from your window.

It's Easy to Plant your Cedar Deodar

Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Cedar Deodar.

If you're planting a hedge, mark out a visual guide by placing stakes five to six feet apart and looping string around them. Plant the where the stakes are and they'll grow together to make a dense privacy screen.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Cedar Deodar gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Cedar Deodar again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

Why is top of Deodra tree leaning vertical?
A shopper on Jun 29, 2014
Best Answer: If the area that's leaning seems droopy this can be a sign of over watering. Depending on the size of your tree, it may need to be staked up. Do you see any discoloration? That's also a sign of over watering.

my 2 deodora pine's seems to be thinning out and has lots of smaller dried branches up- in middle of tree, it gets plenty of water i believe its about 25 feet tall can any body help ?.
art d on Jun 16, 2014
Best Answer: This could be happening for a number of different reasons. You may need to fertilize your tree. Does a lot of wind hit your tree in that area? Sometimes needle drop will occur during the first heat spell after a cold winter in order to reset itself and prepare for new healthy growth. Have you checked your tree for any signs of fungus or bugs?
