Herein, how fast do Alaskan weeping cedars grow?
It grows fairly slowly, usually adding no more than 12 inches to its height in a growing season, but the tree's exceptionally long lifespan means it will live for a long time once it reaches full height. Its normal spread of 15 to 25 feet gives it a tall, narrow form.
Subsequently, question is, how do you propagate Alaskan weeping cedar?
- Take cuttings from white cedar trees in late fall, winter or early spring, when trees are fully dormant and sap is running very slowly.
- Cut three to four 6-inch stems from this year's growth of cedar branches with a sharp knife.
- Pinch off foliage from the bottom half of each cutting.
