Cupressus glabra, known as the Arizona Smooth Bark Cypress, is a species of conifer native to the American Southwest, with a range stretching over the canyons and slopes in a somewhat wide vicinity around Sedona, Arizona. It was first described by George Bishop Sudworth in 1910.
It is distinguished from the closely related Cupressus arizonica, of which it is sometimes listed as a mere variety, by its very smooth, non-furrowed bark which can appear in shades of pink, cherry, and grey.
