Meyers Spruce
Eastern Red Cedar

Meyer's Spruce is a popular accent tree with a distinctive and refined pyramidal form. This tree resembles Blue Spruce with its flaking bark and bluish-green needles. Meyer's Spruce can tolerate very dry conditions. This species is deer resistant.

Eastern Red Cedar is native to eastern Canada and is actually a variety of juniper, not cedar. Its pyramidal crown, low hanging branches, and dense, compact foliage makes it an ideal windbreak or shelterbelt tree.

Eastern Red Cedar will attract wildlife to your yard and provide food and shelter for multiple varieties of birds. If you are on the east coast looking to create a windbreak, consider Eastern Red Cedar.
