Cedar in containers

I have a 3’ cedar I dug from ground in Blackfoot, Idaho. I want to put in a container but afraid it will freeze or die. First can I plant it in container and second if so, how do I protect the roots in freezing weather. Thanks inadvance

You don't say what kind of cedar but they are typically too large for a container, however I included information on planting in containers. In the winter you can move the container to an unheated garage or shed and water occasionally.
