Family Pinaceae (Pine family)
Incense cedar—Calocedrus decurrens
Family Cupressaceae (Cypress family)
Cedar and incense cedar are large and moderately
fast-growing coniferous evergreen trees. Most of the species are
large skyline-type trees and not widely adaptable to small gardens.
Mostly they are seen on streets or in parks.
Optimum conditions for growth
These trees are hardy with few problems. They are
found in various climatic zones and do well when planted in full
sun. Trees need to be watered deeply a few times during the summer
in hot areas to avoid drought injury and bark beetle attack.
