Cercis canadensis (Eastern redbud) is a small deciduous tree found throughout the eastern United States. Redbud is sometimes known as Judas-tree. It is a strikingly conspicuous tree in the spring because it flowers before other tree leaves form. The wood is heavy hard and close-grained however because of the small size and irregular shape of the tree it is of no commercial value as a source of lumber. This tree is most valued as an ornamental.
