Abstract

Northern white-cedar (Thuja occidentalis L.) is arguably one of the least studied commercial tree species in United States and Canada. It is an important source of wildlife habitat and forage, as well as commodities such as fence posts, shingles and siding. Much of the research on this species comes from the Lake States and Canada; few studies have been conducted in the northeastern region of the United States. A large cooperative research effort initiated and partially funded by Maibec Industries, Inc. is currently being undertaken to determine ecological and silvicultural attributes of northern white-cedar in Maine and adjacent Quebec, Canada.
