Cedrus atlantica is a tree native to the mountainous regions of Morocco and Algeria. They flourish at elevations from 4,500-7,200 feet (1,370-2,200m). In nature, they are often in pure forests or sharing the space with a handful of other varieties of trees.

Fully grown, the Atlas cedar can reach heights of 115 feet (35m), with a trunk diameter of 6.5 feet (2m). The cones tend to be on the smaller side, rarely over 3.5 inches (9cm). The leaf length can vary from 1/3 inch to just under 1 inch (10-25mm).
