The Camphor tree (Cinnamomum camphora), also known as Camphor laurel,
is an exotic that has been widely cultivated for more than a century
as a shade and ornamental tree in Florida and elsewhere.
This is the aromatic tree from which camphor was derived
(used in medicines and mothballs),
until camphor oil began to be made artificially in the 1920s.

The camphor quickly grows into a good-looking shade tree
which is frequented by berry-eating birds.
Camphor laurel is native to China and Japan
where it has been commercially used for its timber
and essential oils for hundreds of years.
