Young Yellow Cedar Sample
The higher elevation of the Caren Range translates into a shorter growing season for the vegetation. Small trees that are 20 to 50 years old at sea level are hundreds of years old up in the Caren Range. This cross-sectional sample of a Yellow Cedar cut down in 2005 by Pan Pacifc Mining Aggregates started growing in the year 1567. It was 438 years old.
