Remarkable trees : Cinnamomum Camphora - Camphrier

  • Natural wonder
Avenue Félix Faure 06500 Menton
Beautiful and aromatic evergreen tree of the Lauraceae family
of the Lauraceae family, Cinnamomum camphora is native to
China, Japan and Taiwan. It can reach 15 meters in height.
Its cream-colored panicle flowers are almost invisible in spring and its fruits, pea-sized drupes, are dark blue-black.
In Menton, as in many cities in warm countries, it is used as a tree in line. But the camphor tree is best known for the essence that is extracted from its foliage and wood: camphor, used since the eleventh century by the Arabs for its tonic and antiseptic properties.
