Western Red Cedar (Thuja plicata)


VAT included

Thuja plicata, also known as Western Red Cedar, is a conifer. It has dark, olive-green leaves that can turn bronze in winter. The foliage has a pleasant, fruity fragrance when the leaves are crushed. Thuja plicata can be cut back into old wood and will re-shoot.

A tree of strength and industry, western red cedar is grown in the UK for hedging and timber. Though less useful than our native trees, it provides food and shelter for wildlife.
