Known as Deodar cedar, this evergreen conifer is pyramidal when young, maturing to flat-topped trees with broad-spreading horizontal branching. The most pendulous of the true cedars, with drooping branchlets and branching that is gracefully drooping at the tips. Lower branches typically remain on the tree as it ages, often touching the ground. This medium-growing tree typically matures to 40-50’ tall in its first 25 years. In its native Himilayan habitat, trees reportedly grow much taller, reaching 150-200’ tall.
