Incense Cedar - Palomar Mountain, CA, USA

This large Incense Cedar, Calocedrus decurrens or Libocedrus decurrens, is estimated to be 400 years old.  The Incense Cedar is native to California and is common in the mountains of San Diego County.

This is another tree I remember fondly from childhood picnics and camping trips on Palomar Mountain.

Located near the entrance of the Silvercrest Picnic Area within Palomar Mountain State Park, which is presently on the closure list of California State Parks in July 2012 due to budget cuts.
