History

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.
