Although White Cedar does well in upland areas, it also does well in wetter lowland areas such as slightly swampy areas, stream banks and lake shores, where the soil is dark and rich. White Cedar is also quite shade tolerant (especially when young), but does well in full sun. It is relatively resistant to insect pests, and its timber is used for poles, shakes and shingles due to it's natural resistance to rot.
White Cedar often turn a leathery brown, reddish or even purple color due to winter exposure, and to the untrained eye one might conclude that they are damaged or dying. However, this color change is quite normal, and the trees will green up quickly in the warmer weather of Spring.
