Item B5: 2 NEW CROP WESTERN RED CEDAR TREES

This package contains 2 new crop western red cedar trees. The trees from this crop are 20 to 28 inches tall. The trees will be shipped in the containers that they are growing in and will arrive with roots intact. The western red cedar (Thuja plicata) is native to coastal Northern California northward to Alaska and west to Montana. This species is hardy in zones A3; 1-9 and 14-24. Red cedars can exceed 200 feet in height and 10 feet in diameter. The trunk is straight and tapered with bark of reddish brown. The straight grain of the wood makes this tree valuable for use in roofing shingles. The lightweight nature of the wood enabled the Native Americans of the northwest to use the western red cedar for seafaring canoes.
