These are the fruit from the tree and contain usually four seeds that birds “transplant” elsewhere.
These are known as cedar berries (also known as juniper berries). They can be toxic in large amounts, particularly for pregnant women since they have been known to cause contractions. However, in small doses, they are edible, and they contain vitamin c, tanins (you’ll mostly hear about those in wines), and an anti-tumor agent known as podophyllotoxin. Birds also love them, and as catcran said, they’ll take the berries and their seeds elsewhere, thus scattering the seeds to make new cedar trees.
