Eastern White Cedar
Small grove, northeast side of Stodder Hall, off Schoodic Road
- Dense stands found throughout the state; extensive in eastern Canada and northern U.S.
- Also known as arborvitae or “tree of life” because the Native peoples used the foliage to treat what 16th century European explorers knew as scurvy.
- Usage includes shingles, posts, fencing, cedar chests, decks, outdoor furniture and food for white-tailed deer.
- Also planted as ornamental.
