Eastern Redcedar

15 Gallons
  • Pollinator value: Medium

    Birds love the ¼-inch blue-green “berries,” or cones.  Rabbits, foxes, raccoons, skunks and oppossums also eat the berries, and deer browse on the twigs and foliage.  This tree also provides shelter for song and game birds as well as butterflies and mammals. 

    Its dense shape makes Eastern Redcedar a great choice as a windbreaker and natural screen.   A male is usually needed for female fruit set.
