CARE
Care Thrives in humus-rich, evenly moist, well-drained soils; dislikes dry conditions. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency, once established. Apply a thick layer of mulch to root zone to protect in exposed sites or cold winter regions. Apply fertilizer in early spring.
HISTORY
Lore The species Thuja plicata is a magnificent cedar, much revered by the northwest Native peoples. Such was their respect and dependence on this tree that it was called "tree of life." The soft yet durable wood was used to build longhouses and dugout canoes, as well as numerous items necessary for daily life. Fiber was woven from strips of bark to create clothing, bedding and mats, and branchlets and roots added strength to heavy rope and baskets.
