Calocedrus decurrens

Incense Cedar, Libocedrus decurrens

Called Incense Cedar because of their aromatic scalelike leaves, many of these are rare New Zealand natives. One is from California. They have cinnamon-colored furrowed bark and brownish cones. While often planted singly in lawns, or in rows as a screen, these evergreens are also prized for their rot-resistant timber. Will not tolerate smog or wind. Prefer moist soil and full sun to light shade. No pruning needed.
