In a Nutshell:

* Taiwania (Taiwania cryptomerioides) is a large coniferous tree in the cypress family Cupressaceae, formerly listed in the segregate family Taxodiaceae. It is native to eastern Asia, growing in the mountains of central Taiwan, and locally in southwest China and adjoining Myanmar and northern Vietnam.
* It is endangered by illegal logging for its valuable wood in many areas. It is very likely that the range was more extensive in the past before extensive felling for the wood.
* It is one of the largest tree species in Asia, reported to heights of 80 m tall and with a trunk up to 4 m diameter above buttressed base. more...
* "In height the Taiwania overtops all other associated trees ... The tallest individual ever found measures about 65 meters high. Giant trees with diameters up to 3 meters are rather common in the mixed coniferous and hardwood forests" more...
* Best grown in moist, rich, acidic, well-drained soils in full sun. Tolerates light shade. Soils should not be allowed to dry out. Site in a location protected from winter winds.
* Rare and difficult to find in commerce. Where winter hardy, it may be grown as an ornamental tree. more...
