Huge Ornamental Tree for Any Landscape

Cedar Deodar (Cedrus deodara) is an evergreen tree that can reach 70 feet high and 20 to 40 feet wide.

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.

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.

1st time shopper. I was surprised with the one and half day delivery. My three cedar deadora trees were first rate quality and very healthy and about 3 1/2 feet tall. The price was too high, but since these trees are so hard to find and the quality was so excellent they were worth the 180 .00 dollars.

Beautiful Tree
The Deodar Cedar tree arrived in really nice condition! It looks beautiful already and it's only about 4 foot tall. Can't wait to watch it grow and mature over the next couple years! Great tree that will look terrific in your landscape if you have the room.

Too soon to tell
Our Deodar Cedar was delivered quickly and was about 3 feet tall I think and in great shape. We planted a few days later. This was several month ago and with winter on us I don't expect much to happen until spring but it does look just as good today as it did when it arrived and I think there might be a little new growth on it. Very excited about spring as we also planted 7 other trees.

Deodar Cedar
I wanted a cedar that will grow large and smell nice. I'm sure this will do that. It was well shipped and seems very healthy. I'm pleased with it. I had hoped it was a cedar with dark green lacey fronds but that is my fault for ordering the wrong thing. I can't comment on the growth rate or hardiness yet as it is still in the pot.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for 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.

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.

Planting & Care

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.

Will this tree grow in Corpus Christi, TX? We have solid clay soil and plenty of wind.
Jeff L on Oct 31, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi Jeff. I dug a 3 feet wide and 2 feet deep hole on my backyard. The clay was very hard I used a drill to break it. Then I placed my Cedar Deodar in the hole and back fill it with Sta Green for tree & shrub and my ground soil. Mix 2/3 Sta Green to 1/3 ground soil. Last summer we had over 100 degree temp for days but my Cedar took the heat so good. No problem with strong winds. Just stake it while it is young. Water once a week in the summer. My Cedar is looking good. I hope yours will too.

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?
