The High Shoals Eastern Red Cedar is another great cultivar like the Greenbelt and Brodie Eastern Red Cedars because of their drought tolerance, disease resistance and ability to handle a wide variety of soil conditions. The High Shoals cultivar has been developed from cuttings and therefore all High Shoals are genetically identical. When looking at a row of this cultivar they have identical wide, dense and beautiful pyramidal canopies. High Shoals will become the same size as Greenbelt and Eastern Red Cedar maturity but they differentiate themselves because of their dark green foliage and heavy production of dark blue berries. Since all High Shoals are female we don’t have to be worried about the pollen that is produced by the male trees, which some people are allergic to. The High Shoals are a great option for privacy screens and with their dark green foliage it offers a lot of color contrast to other trees in the landscape.
