Incense Cedar is an evergreen tree fairly slow to 150', in your or my lifetime we might see a 30' tree. Native from Ore. to Baja. It's serpentine tolerant, heat and drought tolerant. It will tolerate most conditions, slow but appearance clean and foliage fragrant. Young trees are hardy to -5 F., older ones can handle -10 F.. In the Tehachapi Mts. the tops froze off of these in Dec. 1990 at between -15 and -20 F.. This species is native in a lot of habitats and will handle a lot of different soils and moisture levels. Seems to survive on 15 inches of rainfall or 100 inches of rainfall. Sandy to clay soils are ok. Easy to grow and nice looking.
