A woman plants a red cedar sapling near a creek where salmon spawn. She is volunteering for a habitat restoration project in an area that was once heavily logged. Alder trees have since sprung up, working to restore the land to health by breathing nitrogen into their leaves and transfer- ring it into the soil. But it is time to re- place them with water-loving cedar trees which will shade the creek so salmon can return from the ocean, spawn, and thrive for centuries. The Western Red Cedar can live for 1500 years, grow to a width of 25 feet around, and reach a height of 250 feet. When cedars are planted in healthy soils, under the shade of other trees, they grow slow and strong, providing the best wood for building homes, boats, baskets, clothing, deep-sea fishing rope, and other necessities vital for life.
