Tamarix articulata Vahl Notes (Salt Cedar):

Zohary notes that Bedouins planted tamarisk trees (e.g., in the Negev Desert) for their shade and soft branches. They are indigenous in the Aravah Valley. Although originally the Hebrew eshel applied to the tamarisk, later in history its meaning was broadened to tree. Because of the superficial resemblance to cedar, it is sometimes called cedar. The tamarisk was used in cleansing lepers and their houses. Of the 12 species of tamarisk native to Israel, the Nile tamarisk (T nilotica) is possibly most common, growing in every deep wadi, especially near water and marshes (ZOH). HJP entries apply to Tamarix mannifera.
