Eastern RedCedar

Tree Description:

0-018  A few old eastern redcedar trees (Juniperus virginiana) such as this twin specimen can be found at Oak Ridge. The species is native in this area but probably was planted here in the early days of the cemetery for its evergreen foliage. Redcedar is not truly a cedar but rather a juniper. It’s very valuable for wildlife and its wood, and can live for many centuries.
