White Cedar Lives a Long Time

White cedar on the Door Peninsula in Wisconsin.  This tree is not large but it is old.  It can withstand strong wind and waves, cold winters and hot summers as it clings to layers of limestone on the shore of Lake Michigan. White cedar  (arbor vitae) can live for over 800 years.  It's a hardy tree indeed.
