Eastern Red Cedar Forestry Plugs (SIZE P1), 4-8+" height

Juniperus virginiana

Sold only by the full box of 360 trees - Limited availability - online only

Now you have access to the same trees planted by the giant timber companies and many forestry agencies! The roots of the P1 size trees are surrounded by a plug of soil 1.1" in diameter and nearly 4" deep. Typically, plugs experience less transplant shock and improved survival rates. The trees range in height from 4-8+" above the soil plug. (Product photo shows Red Pine P1 SIZE to illustrate the soil plug and tree height, the foliage on Fraser Fir will look different)

The Eastern Red Cedar is an iron man when it comes to trees. If you have a tough spot to fill, this is your tree. This cedar will grow just about anywhere, even in those bottom land and low lying areas of your property. Its dense, blue-green and somewhat prickly foliage is a natural harbor for many types of birds and is deer  proof. The Eastern Red Cedar turns a purplish color in autumn and its berries stay on as a food source for many different birds and small mammals.

Product questions

No questions yet. Be the first to ask the question!
  • This evergreen does not tolerate heavy or wet soils, preferring fertile loamy and sandy soils instead.  Soil PH levels in the range of 5.5-5.8 are ideal
  • The branches on the Fraser Fir turn slightly upward and the tree exhibits a dark blue-green color with a silvery underside
  • The Fraser Fir makes an excellent choice for a Christmas tree because their strong branches support heavy ornaments
  • The branches of this evergreen are more dense when the tree is young and become more open as the tree ages
  • The needles on the Fraser Fir are flattened and 3/4" long
  • It is common to see the Fraser Fir growing along side of Yellow Birch, Paper Birch and Sugar Maple
  • Deer do enjoy browsing on the soft needles of the Fraser Fir so planting in an area where deer populations are low or providing protection is important to the tree's long term success

Fun fact:  The Fraser Fir is named after John Fraser (1750-1811), a botanist from Scotland who explored the southern Appalachian Mountains in the late 18th century.

Common Uses:

  • Windbreak, can withstand winds of 100+ mph
  • Ornamental
  • Reforestation
  • Good wildlife value
  • Shade tree

Like most conifers, the Fraser Fir gives many species of birds a place for nesting, roosting and general protection from winter weather.  Red Squirrels also eat the seeds from the cones that are produced as well as the terminal buds of the Fraser Fir. Deer do browse on the Fraser Fir which enjoy consuming their soft needles.
