Eastern White Cedar
Commonly used for sidewall and occasional roof applications, Eastern White Cedar grows in Eastern Canada, and because of its lighter, more neutral color, it can be stained to nearly any color, with semi-transparent stains. It is an evergreen tree with fan-like branches and scaly leaves. Unlike the closely related species, Western Red Cedar, it is only a small tree.
