> Does the Atlantic White Cedar have the same attributes as Redcedar?

I would think that it would be about as good for cover, but not as good 
for attracting Cedar Waxwings, since it doesn't have fleshy cones.  It's 
also the host plant for Hessel's Hairsteak, a rare little mint-green 
butterfly that's similar to the more common Juniper Hairstreak, which 
uses Redcedar as a host.
