YELLOW CEDRE (Chamaecyparis nootkatensis)
belongs to the Cupressacae family and is commonly referred to as yellow cedar, Alaskan cedar and Nootka cypress. Its species name nootkatensis refers to the Nootka tribe of Vancouver Island, on whose land the tree was first found. The scientific name of yellow cedar has an illustrated history, with many aliases such as Callitropsis nootkatensis, Xanthocyparis nootkatensis and Cupressus nootkatensis. Currently, the accepted name is Cupressus nootkatensis due to discoveries in molecular genetics in 2010 that place the plant in the genus Cupressus. However, it is still an ongoing debate and many botanists and literary sources still refer to it Chamaecyparis nootkatensis.
Yellow cedar wood is exceptionally durable and sturdy and it is for this reason that it is often used in building structures such as shingles, poles, exterior doors, decks, stairs and landscaping. Wood also has a uniform density, making it a popular choice with the fact that yellow cedar wood lacks visual grains. Indigenous peoples had many uses for wood, making objects such as blankets, bows, bowls, and building boats.
