Two species of Chamaecyparis (Cupressus Nootkatensis and C. Lawsoniana) inhabit Pacific North America and are among the noblest and most valuable trees of this continent. The more northern of the two, C. Nootkatensis, the Sitka or Yellow Cedar, is a common inhabitant of southeastern Alaska, where it is scattered through the forests of Spruces and Hemlocks which cover the coast mountains, and ranges southward through western British Columbia and Washington to the valley of the Santiam River, in Oregon. It is the most valuable timber-tree of Alaska, where it sometimes grows to the height of one hundred and twenty feet, with a trunk six feet in diameter. Its light, close-grained pale yellow wood has no superior in our forests as material for the cabinetmaker, and in its lasting quality when put into the ground. The slender branches of the Yellow Cedar, sweeping outward and upward in long curves and furnished with long, gracefully drooping frondlike bright yellow-green branchlets, make this tree lovely in its native forests ; but to develop all its beauties it requires the humid climate of the north-west coast, and in drier regions displays little of the grace and vigor which make it one of the handsomest of our conifers.
