Northern White Cedar (Thuja occidentalis)

Northern white cedar is abundant across most forested regions in the northern two-thirds of the state. It has adapted to many soil types, from pure stands to mixed with other species on all but the driest of sites. The species is important to whitetail deer as both cover and winter browse. In addition to deer, white cedar stands have been found to support 83 species of animals including over 40 species of birds (Source).

Northern white cedar grows naturally in wet forests, being particularly abundant in coniferous swamps, where other larger and faster-growing trees cannot compete successfully (Source).
