We all talk like we know our local brand of cedar very well. Truth is, we don't know Jack. Here's is a chance to really learn something about it:

Atlantic white cedar trees were harvested for timber in the Pine Barrens starting in the 1700’s. Stands of Atlantic white cedar were drastically reduced as a result of these early activities. In
1990 Professor Zimmerman began to study methods of regenerating stands of Atlantic white cedar and he will lead us on a driving and hiking tour of some of his sites in the Pine Barrens.
