Fast Growing, Hardy Evergreen Great for Wildlife 

The Eastern Red Cedar tree is an evergreen conifer. You could use several as a large privacy screen or just one would look beautiful as a specimen plant.  

If you’re a bird-lover, this is the tree for you. The Eastern Red Cedar, Juniperus virginiana, grows in a 40-60 foot pyramidal shape that is dense but somewhat irregular, providing terrific cover for birds and other wildlife. 

The bark has a shredding nature that is hidden from view but useful for nest construction. The ¼ inch dark blue cones that are produced by the female tree are a valuable food source for many species of birds.  

The Eastern Red Cedar tree has blue-green foliage that sometimes turns a darker brown-green shade in the winter months. 

Plant several along your driveway for that rich pine aroma as you arrive home. Step close and you’ll detect the cedar scent that is prized by many who construct cedar chests from them, or use them in closets for their natural ability to repel insects. 

People also love to clip a few springs for use indoors during the holiday season. They make wonderful wreaths or just scatter a few boughs around for their invigorating pine bouquet.  

Hardy and easy to transplant, the Eastern Red Cedar is a tree you can plant and forget about. It will adapt to almost any conditions and provide you years of enjoyment.
