Eastern red cedar, or eastern juniper, is most familiar in our region as a small tree that comes up in old, abandoned pastures. But its native and natural haunts are cliffs and ledge-tops, where thin, dry soils keep most other tree species from surviving. Here, eastern red cedar trees grow very slowly, getting older but not much bigger with each passing year. We will visit one of these astounding cliff-tops and the adjacent hilltop where dry oak forests and woodlands thrive. Click here to register.
