The Western Red Cedar
The western red cedar (Thujy
plicata Donn ex D.Don) is a tree species of the Pacific Northwest on the
American continent. The timber is a use in the making of shingles. Many of the
trees in Liliental, which were planted in 1960, carry a white ring. This means
that the trees are regularly measured in order to obtain information about the
growth characteristics of this species on this specific site (see map 17).
