Eastern Red-Cedar

TN native.  The most widespread conifer in North America. It’s not a true cedar, yet it is a Juniper. It has been described as being used by over 60 species of birds and dozens of other animals.  Its tiny blue cones and evergreen cover are the main reasons. The wood has been called bloodwood because of the pretty red color, and the wood is very durable in or on the ground.  The wood smells nice and is used indoors as well as outside.
