peeling the bark

a horizontal cut is made at the bottom and a vertical cut on each side to start, and then you can pull the bark upwards in a long strip.

 

please rest assured that you can remove some of the bark without hurting the tree - it will grow back. first nations on this coast have been using cedar bark for thousands of years in this way.
