My neighbor invited me to see how big a Red Cedar tree can get. She knew from my earlier blog that I planned to plant one in my yard. She had planted one a number of years ago in her own backyard and wanted me to see the size of it today. She said that if she had known how big it was going to get, she would have planted it farther away from the house. This is what she showed me:
Now I realize how much space I need to give this baby Red Cedar to grow! It certainly pays to plan ahead.
The tree is lovely and dense. I think that it would be best to place it in a place where privacy is desired.
Here is a close up of its branches.
I will plant it on the north side of our house, just as my neighbor did, but a bit farther away.
