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