Symbol of gigantism in nature. This tree is used in parks
planted alone, in avenues in sheltered positions as far as the
Paris region. It has trailing branches, and can live more
than 2000 years. Little used in France in forestry despite its
productivity. Sought after in the United States for using in
exterior carpentry and woodwork
