Did it smell of parsley?

Crushing the foliage of some of these trees can be a good clue to their identity - if it was Lawson's cypress it would have smelt of parsley. Foliage and cones look right, but the 'smell test' can help clinch the id on some occasions.

All the best.

Smell test

Next time I visit the park I shall try the smell test. Thanks and regards
