If I were asked what I love most about this tree, I probably couldn't give just one attribute, but the first thing that comes to mind is how much I enjoy the pleasant fragrance the tree emits, and how its handsome stature makes a perfect Christmas tree. But then maybe it's because it's so beneficial to songbirds and other wildlife, protecting and feeding so many over winter. Or maybe it's how much history the tree has, or how it provides medicine for many.

I have come across your beautiful and thorough text on the Eastern Red Cedar while googling Juniperus virginiana.
Thank you for sharing all this precious and inspiring information on this lovely tree and its aromatic wood.
I have been playing Native American Flutes made of Eastern Red Cedar for years and therefore have learnt how to cherish this so special wood
Please, allow me to share with you the title of one of my books which is dedicated to the beauty and musical inspiration of this tree: `Gentle Cedar and the Woodpecker´ by Marcia Oppermann which can be found at amazon.
Thank you once more for your inspiring and highly informative text.
With best regards,
Marcia Oppermann Contador
