|Lore||Juniper's foliage and wood contain rich volatile oils that make these plants resistant to decay and nearly drought proof. Juniper scopulorum, or Western Redcedar is prized for its reddish-brown and aromatic heartwood that is commonly used for cedar chests and closets because it repels insects. The wood is also used for interior finish, fence posts, poles and pencils.|
