National Tree

The national tree of Bhutan is cypress. Cypress is a very special tree in the Bhutanese historical and cultural contexts.

Cypress grows in abundance in the temperate regions across the country and around temples and monasteries. Some cypress trees found near temples and monasteries are said to have grown from the walking sticks of some great religious personalities.
