  • Ecological Value: The Deodar Cedar is a fine-textured evergreen tree that makes a good substitute for white pine.  Its form is broadly pyramidal when young, its pendulous branches become wide and spreading, as its central leader often dies out. Considered to be one of the most graceful conifers, it works well in landscape groupings or as a screen. This tree is resistant to damage by deer and is moderately salt tolerant. With its lower branches removed, it makes an attractive, interesting street tree. Due to its messy habits, placement as a street tree should include considering the distance from sidewalks and street paving.
