Eastern Redcedar Science Literacy Project
Our mission is to provide the most comprehensive resource on the spread and impacts of Eastern redcedar, one of the most well-studied and problematic invasive species in North America. Scientists have reached clear consensus about the problems posed by Eastern redcedar invasions. As scientists, we feel an ethical responsibility to disseminate decades of research findings to the general public, politicians, K-12 educators, natural resource professionals, city planners, and the next generation of scientists. This site provides the facts that should be used to question existing land management practices, to critique existing government policies and future proposals, and to hopefully create a more literate and informed society. Every citizen in the Great Plains should know the costs of Eastern redcedar invasion and the underlying reasons for this new environmental problem.
