Northern white cedar was selected as an eighth species for complete tree investigation of weight, nutrient elements and pulping characteristics because it comprises approximately 13% of the total softwood growing stock in Maine, but only amounts to about 2% of the total softwood timber cut for all purposes. It is hoped that the information in this bulletin will provide basic information permitting northern white cedar to become a more meaningful segment of the Maine forest economy.
