Alaska Yellow Cedar


Technically a species of cypress, Alaska Yellow Cedar grows on the west coast from Oregon to southern Alaska in higher elevations. It is a very slow growing tree with grain to tight that it can require a magnifying glass to count the growth rings. It is a highly prized wood for its appearance, workability and resistance to rot.
