Eastern White Cedar

Eastern white cedar is one of Ontario's most valuable trees for wildlife habitat. Also known as "arborvitae" or "tree of life," it provides shelter and food to deer, small mammals and many species of birds. With its dense, evergreen foliage and cone shape, white cedar is a beautiful landscaping tree and a popular choice for hedges and windbreaks. We also value white cedar wood for its resistance to decay and its distinctive aroma. This Extension Note provides information on identifying and managing white cedar.
