Eastern White Cedar
Eastern White Cedar Thuja occidentalis the tree of life, was
recommended to Jacques Cartier by kindly Indian people as a cure for the
scurvy that was plaguing his men. It is also a popular food item for
several species of wildlife. This tree has scale-like leaves that are
flattened close to the stem. It likes to grow in swampy areas where its
somewhat twisted trunks and fibrous bark are quite easy to recognise.
