Cedar

evergreen

Cedar (genus Cedrus), evergreen, cone-bearing tree with fragrant wood. The timber trade calls several unrelated trees “cedar” but the true cedars are species found in the mountains of North Africa and Asia. They are distinguished by being the only evergreen conifers with needles in tufts along the branches.
