Prior to the availability of plantation grown Christmas trees, wild eastern redcedars were the tree of choice for many in the south. They were chosen for their natural conical shape and ready supply.
This species is bluish-gray in color. This Christmas Tree has good symmetrical form and has an attractive blue foliage.
