Juniperus virginiana var. silicicola, also known as southern red cedar, is a slow-growing tree that can reach heights of up to 66 feet. It is native to the southeastern United States and along the Atlantic and Gulf coasts. The tree is an important winter food source for birds who disperse the wingless seeds. The wood is close-grained, soft, and fragrant, making it suitable for use in chests, wardrobes, closet linings, flooring, and scientific instruments. The red inner bark can be used as a source of red dye, and the bark itself is useful as tinder for starting fires. The tree prefers full sun and can withstand harsh conditions, but shaded branches tend to die back. Its fragrant cedar wood and dark green foliage make it an attractive addition to gardens and landscapes. Southern red cedar is commercially important but the supply of timber is limited, making it a valuable and unique addition to any garden or property.
