Cinnamomum camphora - Camphor Tree

Cinnamomum camphora - Camphor Tree  (Cinnamomum camphora - Camphor Tree)

Some common Camphor trees growing in Balboa Park, San Diego, CA. They're a very hardy and commonly grown tree here in CA...they 're probably very commonly grown in England too. Photo taken June 3, 2010.

I don't think I have ever seen one of these trees in England.Do they smell like moth balls or Vic. !!!

When the leaves are crushed they smell like camphor. This is the tree which camphor is extracted from.
