Atlas cedar Cedrus atlantica
Also know as: Argan, Atlas deodar
Cedrus atlantica, often called Atlas cedar, is a large tree (up to 40 m high) native to the Atlas and Riff Mountains of Algeria and Morocco. It is a fast-growing tree found between 1000 and 2000 m elevation.
C. atlantica produces fragrant, durable wood used in furniture, joinery, and veneer. The scent makes it especially popular for clothing storage furniture. Atlas cedar trees also produce cedarwood oil, an essential oil sold and used for medicinal purposes as well as in fragrances. Its IUCN Red List status is “lower risk/least concern.”
