Red Cedar

The red cedar tree is a sensitive tree to try and grow. It must be well taken care of and kept after in the first couples years after planting it, in order for it to take off and become a useful tree. It has dark green needles during the spring and summer months. Then as autumn approaches the needles slowly begin to change and come the winter months the needles have a reddish tint to them. The cedar tree has a distinct smell and sometimes people will go out and take a few clippings off the tree to put in their home during the holiday seasons. Cedar is also known for making furniture. Cedar chest and picnic tables are popular buys. The red cedar had pine cone seeds and each cone has anywhere from 10-15 seeds. The red cedar also has scaly-like leaves which make the tree easy to pick out when other trees are around. Once the tree has reached a mature age, the bark becomes easy to tear off.
