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 sometimes turns a leathery reddish or even purple color due to winter exposure. 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. White Cedar will also lose lower needles and branches if grown tightly in a small space, but this is also normal and will fill in once planted in an area with enough space.
