A shelter belt of male ERC (no bluish/gray berries) makes good winter upland bird cover or a screen. Once you have what you want then cut down the female trees with berries or they will spread if not kept in check by continued management.
I am a little hesitant to mention juniper and cedar as the same because there is ashy juniper and red berry juniper down in TX which are totally different plants. Red berry juniper, for ex, is fire resistant under most burn protocols and can grow new sprouts from a cut stump...very hard to control without intense fire under red flag conditions.
Red cedar is easily controlled by cutting below the lowest limb or with prescribed fire.
ERC is a regional problem is this part of the US leading to vast acreages of degraded rangeland, loss of soil function, and increased flooding. The plants can grow at an incredible rate given 3 years of good growing conditions.
Most burn associations in the central plain states are well versed in cedar and juniper topics. That is why the field day above is comprehensive in nature....economic, social and ecological aspects.
