Atlantic White cedar trees felled by superstorm Sandy are being turned into cedar shingles at Colonial Williamsburg in Virginia. The shingles will be used for an "authentic, 18th-century style roof" on the historic Market House under the efforts of Garland Wood, a master carpenter. The toppled trees come from Double Trouble State Park in N.J. and will provide scarce Atlantic White cedar for the historic site.
