At Kidadl we pride ourselves on offering families original ideas to make the most of time spent together at home or out and about, wherever you are in the world. We strive to recommend the very best things that are suggested by our community and are things we would do ourselves - our aim is to be the trusted friend to parents.
We try our very best, but cannot guarantee perfection. We will always aim to give you accurate information at the date of publication - however, information does change, so it’s important you do your own research, double-check and make the decision that is right for your family.
Kidadl provides inspiration to entertain and educate your children. We recognise that not all activities and ideas are appropriate and suitable for all children and families or in all circumstances. Our recommended activities are based on age but these are a guide. We recommend that these ideas are used as inspiration, that ideas are undertaken with appropriate adult supervision, and that each adult uses their own discretion and knowledge of their children to consider the safety and suitability.
Kidadl cannot accept liability for the execution of these ideas, and parental supervision is advised at all times, as safety is paramount. Anyone using the information provided by Kidadl does so at their own risk and we can not accept liability if things go wrong.
The eastern red cedar tree is also called the red cedar, eastern juniper, pencil cedar, and red juniper.
As its botanical name Juniperus virginia indicates, this tree is not a cedar, but a juniper. This evergreen ornamental tree belongs to the cypress family (Cupressaceae) and is commonly found in eastern and central North America.
During the winter days, birds and mammals take up shelter in this tree, as it doesn't lose its leaves all year round, unlike the other trees near it. With healthy growth, the fragrant, delicate-looking branches give a decorative appearance to landscapes.
Being one of the two varieties of red cedar (the other being the western red cedar), the eastern juniper itself has two varieties.
This tree has a distinctive appearance, owing to its unique characteristics.
You'll be quite surprised to know the diverse conditions under which the eastern red cedars could grow in.
The evergreen coniferous red juniper is distributed across a wide range of lands.
