Raced around tree (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

cedar

'tree' is the definition.
(cedar tree is a kind of tree)

'raced around' is the wordplay.
'around' indicates anagramming the letters.
'raced' anagrammed gives 'CEDAR'.

(Other definitions for cedar that I've seen before include "Evergreen tree" , "Raced around noble tree" , "Great hardwood tree associated with Lebanon" , "may have needles?" , "Cypress-like tree" .)

I've seen this clue in The Mirror.
