White Cedar commonly overhangs rivers and lakeshores. It has a slow to moderate growth rate and can reach a height of 40—50 ft. with a crown spread of 10—20 ft. at maturity (200 yrs). It has a dense columnar to pyramidal shape, and the main trunk often divides into several leaders. It prefers soils that are fine clay, medium loams, or moderately coarse sandy loams that are not limestone. Will grow in wet or dry soils. It is moderately tolerant to shade and can withstand drought conditions. Needles are a soft yellow-green to bright green and may turn brown in the winter. Fruit is a small brown cone that matures in fall. Uses include wildlife plantings, wood products, and is excellent for shelterbelts. Do not plant near power lines.
