According to Tollas, the red alder tree contains a brownish red dye that was used for cedar weaving. Next up was the Western hemlock, Tollas explained that because of it’s dense canopy, very few plants can be found growing underneath. However, the branches of the Western hemlock served as bedding material due to its softness. Next, the Sitka spruce, distinguished by the thin bark that breaks into small scales, was especially valuable to the Haida due to the medicinal purposes in the pitch.
