Hollow Cedar Trunks Provided Shelter



Older Western red cedars are prone to rotting in the center of the tree. Hollow cedars use to provide temporary shelter for native peoples. Hunters would find a suitable hollowed cedar and alter it to accommodate one or two people.

These cedar trees could then be used for shelter while out on hunting trips. It is an ingenious use of such structures. The photo was taken up the Sooke River.
