Eastern Red Cedar is an evergreen symbol of resilience in outdoor landscapes. It offers year-round greenery and distinctive red-brown bark and provides a habitat for wildlife.
This tree, called Eastern Red Cedar or Juniperus virginiana, is pretty cool. – it has a pointy shape with needle-like leaves that look like scales. The biggest it can be is 40 feet (12 meters) in height and 20 feet (6 meters) wide. The leaves are always green, which looks amazing against the tree's reddish-brown bark. The tree also has small berries that change color from green to blue, but be careful because they're toxic to cats and dogs and dangerous to humans if eaten in large amounts.
