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).
