Thuja is a general term for trees of the genus Thuja , which belongs to the Cupressaceae or cypress family. Thujas are evergreen conifers, or cone-bearing trees. The name Thuja was given to this group of trees by the Swedish botanist Carl von Linné in 1753. It comes from the Greek word thyein , which means 'to sacrifice', as cedar wood was often burned with animal sacrifices by the ancients to add a pleasing aroma to the fire.
