Red Cedar alias Juniper – we have Live Edge Slab Wood in Cedar

When you need cedar slabs near me in Texas – we have them! The eastern red cedar is a native throughout the northern and eastern parts of Texas. It is a very dense columnar tree that provides excellent wildlife habitat and that can also act as a windbreak. Foliage varies in shades of green. Foliage usually develops a purple to brownish cast during winter months. Typical trees of this species are much larger and less dense in growth habit than the selected cultivars usually planted in landscape situations. Eastern red cedars require full sun and well-drained soil for best results. They become quite open and leggy in the shade. It is adaptable to a wide range of soil pH and tolerates dry, rocky soil. These trees are susceptible to cedar-apple rust.

The Eastern Red Cedar is a coniferous evergreen that is part of the Juniper family. While it can grow to as much as 75’ tall in Texas, it will take a very long time to reach that height. A traditionally slow-growing tree, its bark is fibrous, reddish-brown color and will peel off in narrow strips. While a potent allergen, it is not near as potent as the Ashe Juniper. It is tolerant of both hot and cold climates and thrives in the most adverse soil conditions. Over the past 200 years, Eastern Red Cedars have been used as hunting property dividers for Native Americans and windbreaks and fence posts by farmers throughout North America. It has been called the “red stick” thus, Baton Rouge, LA, was named for this tree. Eastern Red Cedars can be planted very close together and therefore provide excellent visual screens between neighbors. This tree also delivers juniper berries, which are a popular Winter food supply for many birds.
