Alaska Yellow Cedar chamaecyparis nootkatensis

Alaska Yellow Cedar has drooping branches. This is another tree that fell in the 2003 windstorm.

Ckick here to see furniture made from it.

As with all other native "cedars", the yellow cedar is really a different species. True cedars come from the Mediterranean (atlas, cedar of Lebanon) and India (deodara ).

Below is a young start in the native garden.
