California Bay

California Laurel or Myrtlewood is a medium size dense evergreen tree with glossy leaves and rounded habit of growth.  The leaves have a strong pungent odor when bruised.  Grown as an ornamental tree in Oregon and northern California.  The beautiful wood is valued for fine woodworking and is sold in many places in southwestern Oregon.  Little-known in the southern U.S. but well worth trying here.
