Re: Planting for birds

Dear William,

After the first year of growth, the average growth is about 1 foot per year
in good conditions.  In the Carolinas, AWC should be close to 10 feet in
7-8 years.

Atlantic White Cedar has been mentioned on this list as a Carolina
bird-friendly alternative to the over planted Leyland Cypress.  I've not
been able to find any data concerning the growth rate of this tree.  Can
anyone help?  Thanks.
