Cupressaceae -- Cypress family

    Silas Little and Peter W. Garrett

    Atlantic white-cedar (Chamaecyparis thyoides), also called  southern white-cedar, white-cedar, and swamp-cedar, is found most  frequently in small dense stands in fresh water swamps and bogs. Heavy  cutting for many commercial uses during this century has considerably  reduced even the largest stands so that the total volume of this species  growing stock is not currently known. It is still considered a  commercially important single species in the major supply areas of North  and South Carolina, Virginia, and Florida.
