Eastern Red Cedar, scientifically known as Juniperus virginiana, is a species of evergreen tree native to eastern North America. Here's some information about Eastern Red Cedar:

  1. Appearance: Eastern Red Cedar is a medium-sized tree that can reach heights of up to 40-50 feet. It has a conical or columnar shape with dense, dark green foliage. The bark is reddish-brown and exfoliates in thin strips.

  2. Foliage and Berries: The foliage of Eastern Red Cedar consists of scale-like leaves that are arranged in opposite pairs or whorls. The tree is dioecious, meaning it has separate male and female trees. Female trees produce small, bluish-purple berries that are actually cones. These berries are a food source for birds and wildlife.

  3. Uses: Eastern Red Cedar has various uses. The wood is highly durable and resistant to decay, making it suitable for outdoor applications like fence posts, decking, and outdoor furniture. It is also used for making cedar chests and closets due to its aromatic properties.
