Baldcypress Bark
The heartwood of many species of Cupressaceae is resistant to termite damage and fungal decay, and therefore it is widely used in contact with soil. Most prominent in the flora are redwood and baldcypress; the premier coffin wood of China, Cunninghamia lanceolata, is another member of the family. Other genera, usually called cedars, may have aromatic woods with a variety of specialty uses. Wooden pencils are made from incense-cedar, Calocedrus decurrens, and eastern red cedar, Juniperus virginiana, which is also used for lining cedar chests. Wood from Thuja is still used for “cedar” roofing shingles.
