Utah Juniper (Juniperus utahensis) is known also as juniper, desert juniper, and western red cedar.
The ease with which western red cedar may be worked led the Indians to use it in their most ambitious woodcraft.
The western red cedar makes excellent posts and rails for farm fences.
The cut of western red cedar, including shingles, is about the same, and the remaining stand of cedar is very large.
It is, next to western red cedar, the most important shingle wood of the Pacific coast.
The western red cedar has a shorter and more tapering trunk and its volume in board feet is proportionally smaller.
The western red cedar (title page and fig. 5) ranges from south-eastern Alaska to northern California.
Unlike that of the western red cedar, the trunk is usually sound to the center.
