This tree, which has a particularly pronounced scent due to its high concentration of essential oils, generally reaches an average height of fifteen meters. Belonging to the cupressaceae family, it has an impressive longevity of up to 300 years.

It is found naturally in marshy lands, but it can also grow in very dry soils and resists frost well. Its thin, smooth bark, initially reddish brown, changes to a gray covered in furrows over time. The flat and strongly branched branches bear ovoid cones grouped in pairs of 5 or 6, measuring between 1 and 2 cm.

Indigenous populations living along the Pacific coast used Thuya wood, known for its lightness, softness and resistance to rot, in various applications such as totem pole carving, the construction of canoes and habitats.

In addition to its artisanal uses, Eastern White Cedar was also prized for its therapeutic virtues. Decoctions from its branches were used to treat rheumatism, pneumonia and coughs, while infusions relieved headaches and menstrual pain. Moreover, bark poultices were used to treat cuts.

Some Native American tribes burned small branches of Thuya over charcoal to disinfect homes and ward off malicious spirits. The smoke from this tree was also used in religious ceremonies to purify people and sacred objects.

Today, the Canadian Eastern White Cedar remains one of the most popular conifer species for creating hedges, with more than 300 different cultivated varieties. Its natural effectiveness against moths and its pleasant scent make it a material of choice for the manufacture of storage chests and wardrobes. Furthermore, “cedar” shingle cladding, traditionally used as exterior cladding on houses, has marked the history of Quebec colonization for more than four centuries.

Finally, Eastern White Cedar seeds are a food source enjoyed by various birds such as crossbills, pine goldfinches and finches. As for its bark, it is particularly prized by white-tailed deer, which graze on it up to a height of 1.5 meters, to the great dismay of hedges... and their owners!
