Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. A genus of coniferous trees of the tribe Cupressineœ. It is closely related to Thuja, the arbor-vitæ, but distinguished from it by having only two fertile scales in the cone, and seeds united at the top. There are eight species, natives of Chili, California, China, Japan, New Zealand, and New Caledonia. L. decurrens, the North American species, called white cedar, bastard cedar, post-cedar, and incense-cedar, is a large tree, sometimes 150 feet in height, ranging from Oregon to Mexico, with light, soft, durable wood. (See
incense-cedar.) L. Chilensis is the Chilian arbor-vitæ or alerce-tree.
