Cedar (genus Cedrus) is a genus of coniferous trees in the plant family Pinaceae.[1]

Wandlore

Garrick Ollivander believed that whenever he met one who carried a cedar wand, he found strength of character and unusual loyalty. His father, Gervaise Ollivander, used to always say, "you will never fool the cedar carrier," and he agreed: the cedar wand found its perfect home where there was perspicacity and perception.[2]

Ollivander said that he would go further than his father, however, in saying that he had never yet met the owner of a cedar wand whom he would care to cross, especially if harm was done to those of whom they were fond. The witch or wizard who was well-matched with cedar carried the potential to be a frightening adversary, which often came as a shock to those who had thoughtlessly challenged them.[2]
