The cypress of Bhutan or Cypresses du Cashmire is a tree of the family of Cupressaceae, originally from the east ofHimalaya (Bhoutan and adjacent zones ofARUNACHAL PRADESH in the northeast ofIndia). He pushes there at altitudes between 1 250 and 2 800 m.

The specific name Cashmeriana, " of Cashmire ", is explained by the fact that the species was first discovered in this region, although it n '' There is not in the wild, in 1838 by John Forbes Royle, British botanist attached to the India Company.

The female, ovoid cones, 10 to 33 mm long by 10 to 30 mm wide1, are made up of 8 to 12 scales. They are dark green becoming dark brown with maturation, after 24 months after pollination. The cones open at maturity to release the seeds.

The male cones, which are 3 to 5 mm long, release their pollen in early spring.

Individuals with up to 95 meters high have been recently reported (2005 Farjon), but the measures must be verified. If it is confirmed, it would be the largest tree inAsia.
