The cedar tree is part of the pine (pinaceae) family and is native to the countries of North Africa and Asia. The three true cedar varieties have rich, brown colored bark and ascending branches with pine needles in various shades of green. The trees can grow to glorious heights of approximately 40 feet and some have trunks as thick as eight feet in diameter. Once fully grown however, it does not grow further.
Cedar trees are fairly light, making them ideal to include as my intervention. The fact that they don't grow further than their mature size is also useful as there may not be space to accommodate a growing tree.
