Did You Know?
A tall ornamental and timber evergreen coniferous tree, cedar is one of the pine family. There are four species of "true" cedars — the Atlas cedar, the Cyprus cedar, the deodar, and the cedar of Lebanon. Cedarwood is light, soft, resinous, and durable, even when in contact with soil or moisture. Many other conifers called cedars resemble true cedars in that they are evergreen and have aromatic, often red or red-tinged wood that, in many cases, is decay-resistant and insect-repellent. The giant arborvitae, incense cedar, and some junipers (red cedar) provide the familiar "cedarwood" of pencils, chests, closet linings, and fence posts.
