Central Texas Cedar Tree

Cedar Tree

Cedar trees have been considered an “invasive” spreading tree, primarily due to changes in land use and fire suppression practices. This unchecked growth has significant ecological impacts, including altering soil composition, water absorption, and biodiversity. The dense canopies of cedar forests shade out underbrush and other native plant species, leading to less diversity in plant and animal life. Also, it is known as the leading cause of allergies in Central Texas.
