Canadian geography: Acadian forest: eastern white cedar

Self-tutoring about the Acadian forest: the tutor mentions eastern white cedar.

Eastern white cedar typically grows 40 to 50 ft tall (12 to 15m). It reminds one of the cedars we have here on the West Coast, just much smaller.

I can’t recall seeing eastern white cedar in Nova Scotia or PEI when I lived there, although the range map tells me they do inhabit both provinces, and even the specific places I lived. However, I easily spotted them along the highway in New Brunswick and Maine.

Should I return to Nova Scotia or PEI, I will try to find eastern white cedar there.
