This is our classic west coast Western Red Cedar. Happy in any wet areas and growing to substantial size’s over the period of its lifetime.

Its always a treat to visit the Ancient Cedars up on Cougar Mountain just north of Whistler Village. Check the link here for more info on this hike to view these very old western red cedars.
