Distribution:

Redcedar grows in the eastern half of both Canada and the United States. It grows as far south as northern Florida. It is absent in the Gulf Coast and in the highest elevations of the Appalachians. The tree grows in many conditions from wet to dry. Often they an be found growing along highways, fence rows, and in abandon fields. This is likely due the fact the berries that the tree produced are loved by birds, which then deposit the seeds elsewhere.

General Description

The sapwood is often very narrow is white to a pale cream color. By contrast the heartwood which often contains many small knots is a reddish purple color. The wood is usually straight grained with a fine even texture. The wood is highly aromatic, and may have an oily feel.
