Why Brodie Eastern Red Cedar Trees?
No other tree compares to the Brodie Eastern Red Cedar, which offers the highly sought-after qualities of the cedar in a dense, columnar evergreen form.
Because of its sleek, more compact growth habit, the Brodie fits perfectly in any space. And it's one of the hardiest and most tolerant trees on the market:
- It grows anywhere across the country, in any soil or environmental condition - cold or hot, dry or wet.
- No diseases and pests, which means no harsh chemicals or sprays.
- Little to no upkeep because of its tolerance, hardiness and resistant to diseases and pests.
You get the Brodie's light and feathery dark green foliage, densely packed in its upward-growing branches, with ease. In a small yard, one or two can stand out as specimens, and in larger yards, a row of several can act as a perfect hedge or screen. But wherever you plant your Brodies, you'll have a fuller landscape and raise your home's value.

Brodie Eastern Red Cedars
First time ordering trees through mail order. Trees arrived boxed and in good shape, have been planted and looking good. Look forward to see how they'll do compared to the standard eastern red cedars I've got.
Good trees came in good shape and we planted them right away
Just received it.
Brodie Eastern Red Cedars
I ordered 20 Brodies but was concerned about how they can ship 4 foot live plants. They arrived in 5 days and I just say that I was surprised. They were all healthy and in great shape. Great trees!
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.
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Plant your Brodie Eastern Red Cedar in full to partial sun (4 to 8 hours of sunlight) and well-drained soil. Dig 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.
2. Watering: Watering is only necessary during dry periods, especially while it is establishing.
3. Fertilizing: You can add an organic fertilizer in the spring if you want faster growth, but it is not necessary.
4. Pruning: You can prune during the summer for shape and size, but it is not necessary for the health of the tree.
