  Camphor Tree

 

China

The Camphor Tree grows up to around 25 meters tall and has pale brown bark, that is very rough and fissured vertically. The tree has fragrant, glossy, ovate to obovate leaves, that have a waxy appearance and are green in colour.

 

The leaves are arranged alternate and their venation is pinnate. The tree produces clusters of berry-like fruits with a diameter of around 1 centimeter, and which turn black as they ripen. See also List of Thai Botanical Names.
