DescriptionIncense cedar (Libocedrus decurrens) is of considerable economic importance on the Pacific coast. The available supply of this species, which never occurs alone but always in mixture, chiefly with yellow pine, Jeffrey pine, sugar pine, Douglas fir, and white fir, averaging about 8 per cent of the stand, although often forming as high as 30 to 50 per cent, is estimated at 11 billion feet, 10 billon of which occurs in California.
