The Deodar cedar provides nesting sites, cover and food for mammals and birds such as the woodpecker.
This cedar’s name, Deodar, derives from Sanskrit that translates to "timber of the gods." The tree is native to the Himalayas, where it has been known to reach 250' tall. It was introduced to Europe in 1822 and to the United States nine years later.
