A Superior Columnar Evergreen 

No other tree compares to the Brodie Eastern Red Cedar… you'll get the highly sought after qualities of the cedar in a dense, columnar evergreen.

Growing to 30-45 feet tall and only 8-10 feet wide, the Brodie fits perfectly in any space.

And it's one of the hardiest and most tolerant trees on the market:

· Grows anywhere - all across the U.S. and in any soil or environmental condition - cold or hot, dry or wet.

· No diseases - as long as you don't plant it near an apple tree, you'll have no diseases or pests to worry about.

· You don't have to work - tolerance, hardiness and no diseases or pests means there's no maintenance or upkeep.

The Brodie Eastern Red Cedar will stand tall and strong in your yard, and best of all, it will add plenty of ornamental value.

Light and feathery, dark green foliage is densely packed in the upward growing branches.

The bark features a red peeling habit, but the foliage is so compact, you'll hardly ever see it.

This unique combination of a tall, mighty evergreen in a dense habit makes it perfect for any number of uses.

In a small yard, one or two can standout as specimens.

In larger yards, a row of several can act as a perfect hedge or screen.

Whatever way you choose to display your Brodies will definitely impress your neighbors and add value to your yard.

Easter Brodie Red Cedar
Very strong and sturdy. Planted it about 1 month ago. Has been in the 20's F. Snowing 2 inches today. The Brodie looks beautiful. Very pleased. The one is planted in an area that holds rain water, so we built the dirt up around it, but time will tell - supposedly Brodie's do well in various types of soil and drainage.

Thank you for your great service!

Pricy but Just right for my backyard
My plant arrived healthy and well packaged. In order to get free shipping I added root rocket fertilizer and organic planting mix to my order. I would not buy organic planting mix again because it was a joke. It was such a small packet. I bought leafgrow from ACE hardware and added it to the planting hole along with the organic planting mix and root rocket fertilizer. I have it planted for almost a month. It’s been raining crazy since I have planted it, but it seems to do well and has some new growth on top which is a good sign. I cannot wait to see it grow.
It is very expensive as compared to Eastern red Cedars being sold at nearby nurseries. But I needed something compact and not as tall as Regular Eastern Red Cedar is. So i swallowed the pill and ordered it. Other than being pricy I’m happy with my purchase.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Brodie Eastern Red Cedar

Brodie Eastern Red Cedar Planting Diretions


Plant your Brodie Eastern Red Cedar in a hole twice as wide but just as deep as the root ball. There is no need to amend the soil. After planting, add a layer of mulch to help the ground retain moisture. Water deeply after planting to settle the roots. 


Watering: Watering is only necessary during dry periods, especially while it is establishing. 


Fertilization: You can add an organic fertilizer in the spring if you want faster growth, but it is not necessary.


Pruning: You can prune during the summer for shape and size, but it is not necessary for the health of the tree.


Pest and Diseases: No pests or diseases affect the Brodie.

How many gallons is the 2-3 ft Eastern Cedar versus the 4-6 ft Eastern Cedar?
Kelly S on Jun 11, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The 2-3ft are in a 3 gallon container and the 3-4ft is in a 5 gallon container.
You said it shouldn't be planted close to apple trees. My neighbors have apple trees. So how close is to close ?
Elizabeth H on Dec 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Cedar apple rust can develop between Eastern red cedars and apple trees if the apple trees are not a resistant species. I had a 25 year old crab apple within 15 feet of one of my eastern red cedars and saw a growth forming on the Cedar tree which I cut off. I cut down the crab apple which I was planning on doing anyway. I would suggest going with another type of evergreen than the cedar in your case as spores can travel a mile or more depending on wind and other conditions.
