Red cedar is an evergreen growing 40 to 50 feet tall and spreading 8 to 12 feet when given a sunny location. The tree is best planted balled and burlapped. Red cedar develops a brownish tint in winter and is sometimes used in windbreaks. The fruit is a blue berry and is ornamental when produced in quantity.
