A Superior Columnar Evergreen
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.

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.

Brodie Eastern Red Cedar 3-4 ft
The trees arrived in a cardboard box (5 trees in a box). They were a little more sparse than I'd hoped, but overall they were in tact and ready to be planted.
What you're seeing is pretty typical for a young evergreen. They will focus more energy on growing up and then focus on branching later!
So far, very good
So far, very good! I am impressed with “fast growing trees” service, they did what they said they would. I am happy with the process and product. I over did the planting to insure the trees will flourish and except the trees to grow to the specificities described the company. Only time will tell.
Great trees/great customer service
The Brodie Red cedar is an excellent tree for a small residential landscape because unlike the species red cedar it maintains a nice pyramidal shape and it stays relatively small. This variety is hard to find at local nurseries and then generally it is a 6-ft b&b tree that is too large for the average homeowner to handle. I ordered two of the 4-5 foot size trees and they arrived within two days of my placing the order. They were beautifully packed in very heavy cardboard. One of the trees was just a bit smaller than what I had expected and I contacted customer service and they were amazing and offered to adjust the price on the smaller tree. I was hesitant to order trees online but based on my experience with FGT I can strongly recommend them and the trees they grow.
Nice little trees!
Order went well, This is the second time I have used fast growing trees and this experience was better than the first.
