Eastern Red Cedar - Juniperus Virginiana
This tree is native to huge areas of the east of Rocky Mountains. It is a very nice utility tree and can grow as tall as 60 ft. and 15-20 feet broad with age. A Cedar holds its dense foliage low at the ground that is extremely helpful for screening. The species usually boasts scale like dark green needles which are present throughout the year though they form a reddish tinge during winters. This tree needs full sun for growing tall and generally prefers moist well-draining rich soils. This tree is surprisingly adaptable and even will thrive in poor soils. This tree can also be pruned when needed. It is one of the most stunning trees that can be either used as screening property divider or landscape planting.
