wood was very highly esteemed
for all sorts of inside work, and
appeared to possess to a high de

though distinct in color, perfume,
and especially in its greater rapidi- j

the wood of the Sitka cedar, and
unless produced by Lawson's cy

of smoke obscured the sky; it be- j

be abandoned, and navigation was
imneded for miles out to sea. Ir
has been estimated that from "200,

Orford cedar was destroyed at this
time.- It reproduces itself, how-j

foresf is burned over it is the first
tree to reappear, springing up'
generally in tho third year. '
As early as 1854 the first cargo
of Port Orford cedar was sent to
