The Photo Gallery contains images that illustrate various aspects of the ecology, regeneration, culture, management, physiology, utilization, and restoration of Atlantic white cedar.  Images are searchable by keyword or topic. Our photo gallery is being updated routinely, so be sure to visit again in the future to see more photos and their descriptions.

  1. To browse through the Photo Gallery, click the button “Search Description” or the button “Search Keywords”.  All images will appear in a column.  Scroll through them using the side bar.  Each picture has a descriptive caption.
  2. To search using keywords, click the button “List Keywords” to see a complete list of keywords assigned to images in the Gallery.  To search a specific keyword, type the word or phrase in the box, and click the button “Search Keywords”.   Example 1:  type in the word “Containerized seedling”, and click the button “Search keywords”.  All pictures that include the keyword “Containerized seedling” will appear.  Scroll through those images using the side bar. Example 2:  type “Large tree” in the box for keywords, and click the button “Search Keywords”.   All images will appear that include the keyword ‘Large tree”
  3. To search images based on a specific word in the caption, type the word or phrase in the open box under “Search description”, and click the button that says “Search description”.  Images with that word in the caption will appear.
  4. Anyone who wishes to submit picture(s) to be considered for the Photo Gallery should contact the webmaster (James McGraw) or Eric Hinesley for instructions.  The procedure to submit one or two pictures might differ from the procedure for many pictures.  Initially, we will need a good image and a brief description.  After evaluating pictures for suitability, we will contact the person who submitted the picture(s) to obtain additional information, if needed.  If the image(s) are to be locked (not downloadable), that should be indicated.

Description: Boat made from Atlantic white cedar (AWC) in eastern North Carolina. (Panel A) Keel and ribs are constructed of southern yellow pine (longleaf pine or loblolly pine) and heart cypress (baldcypress). Planking on the sides is AWC. In eastern North Carolina, AWC is commonly known as juniper. (Panel B) Hull of a boat fitted with AWC planking. (Panel C) Completed boat, with cabin attached. There is a rich history of boat building on the Outer Banks of North Carolina as well as the Chesapeake Bay. Historically, these small, shallow-draft boats were constructed from locally available woods such as AWC and baldcypress, which were light in weight and resistant to decay. These boats were used for transportation, fishing and waterfowl hunting in the shallow, treacherous waters of sounds, bays, rivers, and inlets. Modern builders still use these materials, especially in the smallest boats, but also incorporate advanced technology, e.g., charter fishing boats. In 1987, the shad boat was adopted as the Official State Historical Boat of North Carolina.

Description: Rooted stem cuttings of Atlantic white cedar. Shoots were collected from juvenile trees in early June, and rooted outdoors under shade and intermittent mist at Claridge Nursery in Goldsboro, NC. Container is a Spencer-Lemaire Rootrainer (Hilson size) (Spencer-Lemaire Industries Ltd., Edmonton, AB; T5G 2X6). Cuttings rooted in high percentages even without hormone treatment (IBA). Usually, vegetative propagation of AWC is relatively easy, but it is riskier and more expensive than propagation from seed in containers. The primary danger is a power failure, resulting in loss of intermittent mist. [Reference: Hinesley, L. E., F. A. Blazich, and L. K. Snelling. 1994.

Description: Containerized Atlantic white cedar transplant grown in an Anderson band (Stuewe and Sons, Tangent, Oregon 97389). Cell dimensions (Model AB39): diameter (2.88 in), length (9.0 in), volume (59 cubic inches). These bands fit into trays (Model: TRAY5) with dimensions of 17.5 x 17.5 x 4.5 inches; 36 bands per tray. A 1-0 containerized AWC (grown in Ropak muli-pot 45 tray) was transplanted into the band at the beginning of the growing season, and allowed to grow for one additional season outdoors under irrigation. The substrate was composted pine bark amended with 8 pounds per cubic yard of 18-6-12 Osmocote (9-12 month release). This approach yields a good transplant with a root ball that is dense but not excessively bound. Bands and trays are durable, and with reasonable care, will last several years. Trays and bands can both be nested, which facilitates off-season storage.

Description: Buildings made of Atlantic white cedar (AWC) (Medford Lakes, Burlington County, NJ). (Panel A) Cabin with the logs installed with the bark attached, indicating natural resistance to rot and/or insects. Few tree species demonstrate this characteristic. In most cases, if the bark remains intact, it is quickly attacked by fungi and insects, and soon detaches from the log. (Panel B). The Protestant Community Church, “Cathedral of the Woods”.

Description: Broadwell Property in Bladen County, NC. Site is a typical Carolina Bay of about 100 acres with 94 acres planted (spacing: 6 X 6 feet; bedded). Planting stock was 1-0 containerized plants (NC Forest Service), and tree age is 4 years in the field. Several volunteer loblolly pines (Pinus taeda) are also visible.
