The goal of this project is to assess the extent of the population, and map the location of, the Eastern White Cedars that grow in the Niagara Glen/Whirlpool area, as well as to get an idea of their age, physical size, and other notable features. This is the first formal, funded study of old-growth cedars of the Niagara Gorge (Canada or U.S.), to the best of this investigator's knowledge. In particular, it is the first time that increment bore samples have been obtained to accurately measure ages of old growth cedars anywhere in Niagara Gorge.
