Accordingly, how close should you plant cedar trees?
We have had the most success when people spaceour3-3 1/2 foot trees 20 inches apart. You can spacethemas close as 12 to 14 inches to create a denser hedgefaster.5 to 6 foot cedars may be spaced from 20 to 30 inchesapartdepending upon how dense you want the hedge the daythey areinstalled.
One may also ask, what is the best time to plant cedar trees? It's incredibly important to plant cedar treesatthe right time. Summer is not the best timeforplanting cedar hedges. It's recommended to plantcedartrees either in early spring or in the fall.
Similarly, you may ask, how far apart should red cedar trees be planted?
You should probably not plantthetrees a distance from your wall that is lessthanhalf the width of the mature tree. Kansas ForestServicerecommends a planting spacing for redcedars of 6 to10 feetand University of Missouri Extension recommends a spacing of8-12feet.
