The Legend of the Last Cedar King

The term Cedar King comes from mid 20th century Australia, but the tree they call Cedar is not related to the cedars of Europe and North America. The Australian Red Cedar is a rare rainforest tree whose prized wood is worth more, pound for pound, than even gold. When all the easy trees were gone, the men they called the Cedar Kings braved the wild mountain country to find the last trees. When the last trees fell, the Cedar Kings turned to other occupations until there was only one left. old Bill.

At the request of the granddaughter of the real Cedar King the page is be revised to reflect the real history of Bill.

Please come back at a later date.

Thank you.
