Description

Resting nearby a raging river just outside Lake Cushman, was this Western redcedar, or Thuja plicata, of the family Cupressaceae. Some defining characteristics of this native plant are scaley needles, small reproductive cones, and red fibrous bark.

This tree should not be confused with true cedars of the family Cedrus. The fall view of this evergreen tree shows it sits by neighboring firs and hemlocks. Lichens and moss cling to its bark, absorbing all of the moisture-rich air.

Not far from a peat bog. This moss feels like spiky little pine trees, much more so than Polytrichum. I had to get a closer look.. I keyed it out in the Norris / Shevock Polytrichum key. It feels like some sort of strange hybrid between Polytrichum and Atrichum, it even looked like it had geminate teeth but on closer inspection it turned out that lammlea have teeth too.. I was able to key it out by running it through the Atrichum key in Norris / Shevock but not be running it straight through the key, I had to jump around a lot but I got there in the end.
