Red Cedar



The Red Cedar is not really a Cedar but is actually a juniper.  It is native to most of the US from Canada to Florida.

Cedar grows at a medium rate, with height increases of 12–24″ per year. A long lived tree used for windbreaks, habitat, and landscaping.

Deer will usually not eat this species.  The female plants have a large number of berries that many kinds of birds eat. Will grow in the poorest of soils and does not prefer the better or moist soils.

Excellent plant for dry sandy areas where other species would not survive. It is highly recommended for a single row windbreak.

Red Cedar should not be planted near apple trees to prevent the spread of apple rust.
