Found in our classic East Hampton fragrance, Atlantic White Cedar originally thrived in swampy, low-elevation wetlands, characteristic of the Hampton and Montauk areas. The swamps were destroyed by rising sea levels, as well as lumbered, drained and cleared for farmland, but a few Atlantic White Cedar stands still remain. Before Long Island’s population boom, cedar swamps formed an almost continuous chain from Brooklyn to Montauk Point.This special cedar is typical of some historic rustic cedar shingles found on many of the waterfront homes in the Hamptons and Montauk. In 2011, tree trunk remains of the Atlantic White Cedar had been exposed on the shore due to extreme erosion from Hurricane Irene, and were found to be dating back about 4500 years ago.
