Q: What quality are your cedar trees?

A:  We sell only high-quality cedar trees. We select the best bushy trees that have no signs of burning or chafing.

Q:  What size trees should I get for instant privacy?

A:  11–15-foot trees will give you instant privacy within one year from planting. Smaller sizes will take time to give you this result.

Q:  What distance apart will you plant the cedar trees and how do I know how many I will need?

A:  We plant one tree per every ¾ foot for the 3-8’ trees and one tree per every 1 ¼ foot for trees larger than 9 feet. Measure the linear distance in feet of the area you want hedged.

Q: When is the ideal time to plant cedar trees?

A:  Ideal times are when the ground is wet and moist but it is okay to plant them anytime when there is no frost. As long as the after-care instructions are followed as far as watering after transplanting, the trees will continue to grow healthy and strong.

Q:  Do you dig by hand or with specialized equipment and how deep do you dig?

A:   We dig a trench by hand which is about 1 to 2 feet wide and about 1 foot down for the 3–9-foot trees and 1 ¼ to 1 ½ feet down for trees larger than 9 feet.

Q:  How far should the cedar hedge be planted away from fences and sidewalks?

A:   We plant 6” away from fences and sidewalks when planting the 3–8-foot cedar trees and 1’ away for the larger heights.

Q:  What if we don’t have a fence in the location where you are to plant the cedars?

A:   We often plant cedar trees in areas without fences. We will secure the 13-15’ height cedar trees to the fence, but if there isn’t a fence, it’s recommended that customers provide us with metal T-bar stakes on the planting date.

Q:  How long does it take to plant the cedar trees?

A:  There are so many variables as to the length of time it will take, such as weather conditions, accessibility of the area to be hedged, distance from our trucks, soil type, size of trees, etc. Generally, jobs take about 2-5 hours. Heavy rain makes it very difficult to uproot and plant the trees therefore rescheduling may be necessary.

Q:  Can I plant them myself?

A:   It is your choice whether you want them delivered and planted, delivered only, or you would like to pick them up. An after-care instruction sheet will be provided in all cases.

Q:  How tall will cedar trees grow?

A:  They will grow about 1-2 feet per year depending on the soil conditions.

Q:  How long will it take for the cedar trees to become a full privacy hedge?

A:  This depends on the height of tree we are planting.
