This is one of many at SF arboretum showing a very different habit that we I see in Santa Cruz.
Leaves evergreen, spiraly arranged or looking opposite, simple, drooping, shiny dark green, 3.5 - 7" long, 1/2" wide, slightly curved, oblong to lanceolate, while the tip is narrow and drawn out. Usually clustered at the tips of the branches.
Terminal bud with nicely imbricate scales. Stems pale green, shallowly grooved, thin and generally curving upwards.
Plants dioecious, female reproductive structure borne along the stem, shows red in the early spring, giving rise to a pointy green cone, fleshy at maturity, 1" looking somewhat like an olive.
Bark is shaggy tan to gray.
Misidentification: Maybe another Podocarpus, but I hope not.
