Deodar Cedar is an evergreen tree that can reach 70 feet high and 20 to 40 feet wide. It is a popular landscape tree wit its attractive pyramid shape and lovely green-silver color. Deodar Cedar thrive in a variety of moist, well-drained soils. 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. Cold hardy to USDA zone 6.
