Bareroot and rootballed hedging available November - March

Thuja plicata (Western Red Cedar)

A tall conifer with cinnamon-red bark and aromatic bright green leaves that are tinted bronze in winter. Thuja are vigorous, but are ideal for formal or informal hedging if clipped regularly (preferably twice a year in June and September). Thuja are shade tolerant and the growth rate is approx 18" per year.  Suitable for 6-10ft hedges. It also makes a neat specimen tree, reaching 40ft+ if left un-pruned.



We keep a selection of sizes of rootballed hedging in stock from November to March, however please be aware when placing your order that there may be a wait of up to 2 weeks before delivery/collection as your plants may have to be freshly lifted to order if we don't have the required quantity in stock.
