Hinoki Cypress are native to Japan where it is grown and used for timber, lemon-scented and highly rot-resistant. The tree naturally grows very slowly and forms forests, much like the eastern-red-cedar of New Jersey. Hinoki Cypress are commonly used as an ornamental landscape shrub, known for its plumes of cloud-like foliage. Unfortunately, it’s also a favorite to the deer!

Thanks to all those who attended the Hinoki Cypress class on October 10. It was a great opportunity to meet new people from a fairly broad ranged area and we had a fantastic time.
