The western redcedar is an evergreen coniferous tree endemic to the northwest United States and southern Canada.The foliage is arranged in flat sprays with scale-like leaves in opposing pairs, with each pair 90 degrees apart. The tiny cones dangle from the branches' tips. With thin, overlapping scales, the cones are slender, long, and wide. They are green to yellow-green in colour, maturing brown in the fall approximately six months after pollination, and open to shed the seeds at maturity. Long and wide, the seeds have a slender papery wing on either side. The pollen cones are tall, crimson or purple at first, then in the spring, they release yellow pollen.
