    Description

    Eastern redcedar (Juniperus virginiana L.) is the most widely distributed conifer of tree size in the Eastern United States (48). Its range also extends into southeastern Canada. The wood was once favored for domestic use and export because of its exceptional cutting qualities, durability, rich color, and aroma. It has now lost much of its popularity because of limited supply. The magnificent stands of redcedar so often mentioned by early explorers have been cut, and for a number of years redcedar has been primarily confined to fence rows, abandoned fields, and submarginal lands where it often grows poorly.
