Ontario White Cedar Trees
Natural “Fencing” with Ontario White Cedar
Natural “fencing” – the Ontario White Cedar has been long used to create a “natural” private fencing alternative that is easily maintained; while providing a visually pleasing backdrop that “screens” unwanted views!
Ontario White Cedar is a hardy tree; in most areas, they can maintain themselves without your help. Evergreens are extremely valuable for “privacy hedging/screening” since they provide a lush green foliage for a full twelve months a year. Additionally, the winter interest of an evergreen dusted with snow is unrivalled in the garden.

Planting, Watering & Fertilizing
Cedar Hedging plants are not usually planted in individual holes but rather the hedge line is dug as a trench. Dig it at least 40 cm wide and deep (bigger for larger plants) and incorporate equal parts peat moss and composted manure into the soil. Larger plants can be spaced further apart. New hedges should be watered three-times weekly (for 30 or 40 minutes) with the use of a soaker hose, for a minimum of two-months, after planting.
It is recommended that you use an “Evergreen Transplant Fertilizer” for the first year following the manufacturers instructions. Each year thereafter you can apply an “Evergreen Fertilizer” designed for acidic loving plants like cedar, available at all garden centers; make sure you purchase something that is specific to Cedar Hedging i.e. 30-10-10. Cedars should not be fertilized after the end of June so that the new growth can mature in preparation for the winter months – where you will be provided with lush green foliage.
Note: Eastern Evergreen encourages their customers to avoid the planting of bare-root plants as the fatality risk, is much greater.
Pruning and Training
Deciduous plants should be cut immediately to an equal height by at least one-third. Evergreens such as cedar should have the tops cut back by at least 10 cm and the sides trimmed lightly.
