Cinnamomum glanduliferum. NEPAL CAMPHOR TREE. Himalayas
LAURACEAE (Laurel family)

Three trees related to the commonly grown camphor tree are standing along the Engineering buildings on Escondido Mall opposite the back of Memorial Church. The leaves have a characteristic camphor smell but have not had the best appearance, perhaps because of frost. Street tree specimens can be seen in Palo Alto at 355 Parkside Drive and nearby houses.
