Red cedar (J. virginiana) is native to North America east of the Great Plains, from southeastern Canada to the Gulf of Mexico. Red cedar is a form of Cypress tree, not a true Cedar (genus Cedrus) but a variety of Juniper. Red cedar is the most abundant Juniper in all of the eastern United States and southeastern Ontario, appearing in fields and pastures and dry rocky places.

Although only sparse reports document sensitisation to Red cedar, anecdotal evidence suggests that asthma and hayfever are possible following exposure to pollen from this tree. Red cedar has been reported to be a significant cause of early spring hayfever, and occasionally asthma, in the southeastern states of the USA. Copyright Copyright © 2006 Phadia AB.
