Cedar tree on the Kirby North Trail

Cedar tree on the Kirby North Trail. This species is actually a redberry juniper (Juniperus pinchotii), but is commonly referred to as cedar. The tree pictured here is a male and the clusters of yellow color on the branch tips are male pollen cones, which release their pollen into the wind. If you suffer (like I do!) from seasonal allergies in the winter, this is your culprit! #DoctorBot #LakeKirby
