10 Best Trees in America
We have gathered a list with Cedar Sense’s favorite North American trees. Although we might be a tad biased towards the eastern red cedar tree, we encourage you to read the list because there could be facts in here that you might not have ever known about the best trees in America.
This blog is completely our opinion and in no way are we trying to persuade you on what the coolest tree species in the world is. That’s because it’s hands-down the Eastern red aromatic cedar tree. I mean who’s ever going to argue with that?!?!
We simply made this list for your entertainment and to provide knowledge to some of the coolest carbon cleansing plants we have in this country.
