Spanish cedar (Cedrela odorata) is a leaf-bearing tree native to tropical regions of the Western Hemisphere, including the western coast of Mexico, Central American, the West Indies and throughout South America at altitudes of 4,000 feet or less. Spanish cedar wood contains a naturally aromatic resin that repels insects. It is commonly used in the construction of dressers and bureaus in regions where the wood is available. Spanish cedar loses leaves during the dry season or when planted in nutrient-poor soils. The tree grows in areas with a mean temperature range of 64 to 90 degrees. (info source:
