Nota de aplicación

Species of evergreen tree native to the west coast of North America, from the Kenai Peninsula in Alaska, south to northernmost California, typically occurring on wet sites in mountains, often close to the tree line, but sometimes also at lower altitudes. It reaches 40 m tall, commonly with pendulous branches. Due to morphological anomalies, its classification has been changed several times, and is likely to do so in the future due to recent research, perhaps moving it to a new genus Callitropsis or Xanthocyparis, together with the newly discovered Vietnamese Golden Cypress Xanthocyparis (Callitropsis) vietnamensis.
