A Remarkable eastern redcedar

Tree Information
Common Name: eastern redcedar
Scientific name: Juniperus virginiana
Category: Unique tree
Notes: One day I noticed a pair of trees that have grown together. Somehow, sometime, a crepe myrtle shoot managed to push through the trunk of a redcedar tree; now its branches and blossoms spread around the entire tree. The redcedar stands taller than the crepe myrtle, but when I pulled back the branches and peered underneath, I noticed that the crepe myrtle had pushed through the trunk of the redcedar in several places. Now the bases of their trunks are so interwoven that it is difficult to see where one stops and another one begins.
