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

Cedar Deodar Planting Diretions

The Cedar Deodar (Cedrus deodara) is a drought-tolerant evergreen producing 1-2 inch long needles described as blue-green or even a green-silver color. There are typically about 20-30 needles in whorls on their branches as well as reddish-brown cones that are 3-4 inches long at maturity. These cones will eventually break off which allow seeds to disperse. Adored for its weeping habit, the branches extend out, angling down slightly while the tips rise upward. Reaching mature heights of up to 70 feet and widths of 20-40 feet, they make a great windscreens for large yards and also bring an ornamental element often seen in parks or other larger gardens. Recommended for USDA growing zones 7-9, they grow best in warmer climates and can withstand temperatures down to 10 degrees.

Seasonal Information: Plant your Cedar Deodar in the spring after your ground has thawed, or in the fall well before your first frost. You can also plant in summer, but be sure your tree is getting adequate water. The best time to plant is on a cooler, cloudy day. Since they do best in growing zones 7-9, they prefer climates with warmer winters and plenty of sunlight.

Location: Choose a location where your tree is going to have plenty of space to grow and it’s lower branches will not be in the way. Make sure it can get full sunlight and no shade from other surrounding trees or structures. It can thrive in various soils including sandy, loamy, clay, or slightly acidic, but be sure your soil drains well as these trees do not like wet feet.

Planting Instructions:
1) Dig a hole for your tree 2-3 times the width of the root ball and of equal depth. Amending your soil with peat, compost or manure will help it to drain better.
2) Remove your Cedar Deodar from it’s growing pot and place tree in the hole ensuring the top of the root ball is even with the ground.
3) Adjust your tree’s position to ensure that it is sitting straight and begin to backfill the hole, tamping down lightly as you go.
4) Once the hole has been completely covered, water your tree deeply to settle the soil and help fill any air pockets.
5) Mulch around the base of your tree to help conserve moisture in the soil.

Watering: These trees are drought resistant and once established will be fine with occasional rainfall. If you are experiencing times of extreme heat and drought, be sure to provide some extra water for your trees. They do not like standing water so avoid over watering which will lead to root rot.

Pests and Diseases: The Cedar Deodar produces an aromatic oil that will naturally deter insects so it is relatively pest and disease free. Giant conifer aphids can occasionally be an issue, but are usually not severe enough to cause death to the tree.

Pruning: These trees are low maintenance and require little to no pruning. Removing any dead or broken branches will be sufficient enough pruning.

Deodars are considered holy trees by Hindus and are seen on the flag of Pakistan. Ancient gurus lived under them and the Sanskrit roots of the name is the same as the word for God in Greek and Latin but more importantly, there is a Deodar in the front lawn of my church planted in 1932 and it is huge and beautiful.

What is the growth rate for the Deodar Cedar?
Chris P on Oct 17, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I have 12 Deodars on my 5 acres, they grow about 3 ft per year when young, slowing down to about 12" to 18" per year as they get older, mine are 20 years old and are about 40 feet tall and about 20 feet around at the base. Beautiful trees, and very hardy and drought tolerant.
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.

How far from a house foundation can this be planted?
Barbara B on Dec 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Not an expert, but for us the roots are less of an issue than branch contact with the structure. I planted ours at 4400 feet and watered them periodically. I Protected the roots from gophers (an issue for us) and kept the trunk staked and tethered because of high winter winds. They are doing fine and grew close to a foot in this the first year. Our zip code is 92143. We found the locals know what grows best, but this was a good choice.
