||Northern White-Cedar (Thuja occidentalis)
||Also known as eastern white-cedar, northern cedar, arborvitae, and white cedar.
||Grows in eastern half of Canada and United States.
||Generally straight and even grained with a fine, even texture. Uniformly straw-brown heartwood and nearly white sapwood.
||Light, soft, low stiffness, low strength, low shock resistance, poor steam bending, good stability in service and good decay resistance.
||Works well with hand or machine tools. Screws and nails easily but has poor holding properties. Glues, stains, paints, and otherwise finishes satisfactorily.
||Used for poles, posts, fencing, shingles, millwork, boxes, crates, water tanks, boat building, and other exterior applications. Valued for fish net floats and imitation minnows due to extreme lightness.
||Similar properties and uses as Atlantic white-cedar but slightly lighter, less oily and more brittle.
