CYPRESS

NOTE: unless otherwise specifically stated, all of the images shown on this
page are of 1/4" square end grain cross sections shown at 12X with the top
of the image towards the bark and the bottom towards the pith so that
earlywood is towards the bottom of the growth rings and latewood is towards the top

to see all species with links to their anatomy page go here: species links


NOTE: Alaskan yellow cedar, Cupressus nootkatensis is a cypress but because it is most commonly called cedar in the USA, it is on it's own page on the main site as Alaskan yellow cedar rather than being with the cypresses and likewise here in the anatomy pages, it is on the cedar page.
