An extremely resilient tree with the abilityto tolerate both moist and dry soil conditions, it is frequently associatedwith limestone bedrock. Smaller in size to its western red cedar (Thujaplicata) counterpart, the white cedar is known to have a twisted, taperingtrunk giving the tree a rugged appearance.
