CUPRESSUS GUADALUPENSIS. A widely spreading tree, becoming 40 feet
high or more, and 2 to 5 feet in diameter, with grayish-brown bark cleaving off in thin plates and leaving the thin inner bark with a smooth
claret-red surface: branches drooping and branchlets very slender: foliage glaucous-green, the acute or acutish leaves very obscurely glandular
on the back: cones globose, an inch or more in diameter, of 6 or 8 very thick and strongly bossed scales: seeds numerous, large (3 lines long
or more). On Guadalupe Island, off the coast of Lower California; distributed as C. macrocarpa in Dr. E. Palmer's collection
from that island. In cultivation about San Francisco, and likely to prove very valuable for ornamental purposes.
