Tree 24

Cryptomeria japonica

Characterized by its straight trunk, large green needles, and “pom-pom” appearance, the Japanese Cedar, a member of Cupressaceae (cypress family), is the national tree of Japan and is prized for its rot-resistant wood. The ‘Yoshino’ variety was offered by Princeton Nurseries.

It is also known as Sugi in Japan, and can be grown as a bonsai.
